The Ziro Valley in Arunachal Pradesh is inhabited by the Apatani tribe. With a population of about 30,000, spread over thirty-five villages, the Apatani were one of the first tribes to come in contact with the British in the mid-twentieth century. Though popularly known as the Apatani, they prefer to identify themselves as ‘Tanii’.
