“The belief of Indian tribal peoples..….. that their culture was born and nourished in the forest, and their dependence for survival upon its continued existence has imbued in them a respectful attitude to nature, and given rise to the development of the most basic principles of forest management. Around the world, the encyclopedic knowledge of indigenous people on local plants and their applications is an important basis for the development of medicines for the wider good of mankind.”

The Real People of India

India showcases multi-dimensional geographical, historical, economic, political, religious, linguistic and racial verticals. But these diversities are her inherent strength to transcribe unity, despite fissiparous and separative trends.


The nomenclature ‘TRIBES comes from the ancient Romans, and refers to their social organization of community. It generally refers to a fairly close-knit group that expects loyalty from its members, and often has, or presumes it has, common ancestry.


The term ‘TRIBE’ or ‘TRIBAL’ is a British legacy and the use of this word has been started by the travellers, explorers, traders, missionaries and British colonists to distinguish and describe the local native people and their way of life and culture found in Africa, Asia and Australia etc.


Adivasis‘ is the collective name used for the many indigenous peoples of India. The term ‘Adivasi’ derives from the Hindi word ‘ADI‘ which means of earliest times or from the beginning and ‘VASI‘ meaning inhabitant or resident, usually of the forest.
