Photos of a lost Mongolian tribe

The Dukha tribe in Mongolia has lived in the same region for centuries. During that time, they've developed a special relationship with wild animals. Reindeers are their vehicles and wolves and eagles their hunting companions. This connection allows the tribe to feel at home in nature and maintain their culture despite the growing influence of the outside world. Photographer Hamid Sardar-Afkhami documented the tribe and the photographs make us wish we could ride reindeers too.
