Razia Jan sits in her kitchen in the Doodhpathri area in the rural western part of Indian-administered Kashmir. Jan is a shepherd from the traditionally nomadic Gujjar tribe. Her family and others from her tribe come to the fertile valley in the Doodhpathri area in April with their animals, then they build small wood and mud huts. They graze their animals in the valley until October. When cold weather sets in, they return to their winter homes in another area.
