In this Sept. 23, 2018, photo, dancers pose for photographs wearing masks of god Kawancha in Kathmandu, Nepal.  For centuries, Nepal has celebrated the Indra Jatra festival of masked dancers, which officially begins the month-long festivities in the Hindu-dominated Himalyan nation. The dancers, who come from a variety of backgrounds, pull off this performance every year despite minimal financial support from the government and other sources, they say.
