DHA-HANU - THE MYSTERIOUS DROK-PA PEOPLE
Though officially Buddhist, the Dards of the Indus valley called Drok-pa have not been fully integrated into the mainstream of Ladakh’s society. They continue to follow their ancestral belief system, a quaint mix of animistic customs and shamanist rites, which allude to the existence of ancestor and nature worship. Popularly believed to be descendants of the wandering troops of Alexander of Macedonia, but rather immigrants from what is now Northern Pakistan, they are the remnants of a larger stock of a migratory Iranian Indo-Aryan people. Among the many ancestral traditional still followed by the Drok-pa is the abhorrence of the cow and all things associated with it, a pre-Aryan tradition. It is counterbalanced by the reverence for the goat as a symbol of fertility and prosperity, even to the level of a cult animal, the most preferred sacrificial offering to the altars of their indigenous deities on many occasions. The most important festival is the great harvest festival called Bono-na, held alternately in Garkon and Dha village with a one year break in between.
