Evolve Back: Stories from Orange County Resorts

Joy of Life

Puttamma is a charismatic soul who embodies the indigenous spirit of the Jenu Kuruba tribe she belongs to. Though theirs is a culture in transition, she is a shining symbol of their ancient tradition that venerates simplicity of being, mutual respect, and understanding, building strong familial bonds, living in harmony with nature and taking delight in working with one’s own hands.

She is a deeply creative and expressive person who articulates her tribe’s wisdom not just through words and song, but through her life and work as well, which is a celebration of the joy of living.

Local Heroes is our ongoing journey to bring to you captivating stories about our land and its people; a symbiosis that we explore and celebrate through expressive and uplifting video and photo essays every month. We believe this Responsible Tourism Initiative will cause you to see 'evolution' in a new light.
