Two villagers in Ladakh’s Dha-Hanu region, an area only recently opened  to visitors, don ceremonial attire. Members of the Brokpa, a people  thought to have Indo-Aryan roots (perhaps descendants of soldiers who  fought in India under Alexander the Great), these locals wear flowers to  propitiate a local deity who reflects their religion’s mix of Buddhism  and animism. “In our age of globalization,” says photographer Steve  McCurry, “this is a pocket where people adhere to their ancient  traditions.”
