Who is Ghar and Dun?
Ghar is a dark skin boy born to a fair skin mother Gharra. Dun is a fair skin boy, born to a dark skin mother Adura. They are switched when they are infants to keep the Father’s resolution to separate the colours. They are from the Zarda, a stone tool tribe that blame scarce times on the fair skins and the women of the tribe, banning them from hunting and from completing the Hunter’s Walk, a Zardan rite of passage of Adulthood.
The Zarda and The Khamma
These are primitive tribes who don’t have numbers to count, the right clothing for snow, or tools more complex than knapped stone. But in many ways they are similar to modern people, striving to belong, taking care of their sick and communicating through art and song. And they had to face a changing climate – would they become isolationist and tribal, or would they help each other and share tools and resources?
