Tribal Knowledge Systems: The need for documentation & revival

Posted by Raminder Chowdhary August - 24 - 2013 0 Comment

A cultural holocaust

There are over 645 scheduled tribes found in India – the largest tribal population in the world.  Over thousands of years these tribal communities have gained immense knowledge and skills.  The past hundred years have witnessed a cultural holocaust of immense proportions where these knowledge systems and wisdom is disappearing at an unprecedented rate.  There is an urgent need to create awareness, document and revive these pools of knowledge.

KARI is an initiative by One Earth Foundation to create awareness about the dying art form of Kurumbas style of  painting, train young Kurumbas children  and  to provide livelihood opportunities to current and upcoming artists.  For further information, please contact
