The Aienla Project prides itself as the caretaker of monumental collections of historically significant images depicting the lives and customs of the tribal cultures from a time when these indigenous populations had very little contact with the outside world. Many of these photographs were taken during WWII by military personnel and local British administrators who were stationed in the region, as it was a critical flash-point between Allied and Japanese forces.  In collaboration with other academic institutions, the Aienla Project aims to make these collections finally available to the public for researchers and anthropology enthusiasts.
