Tribal People and Globalization: A Theological Perspective

S. Hayong (Author)

Globalization has become one of the major phenomena that has penetrated and encroached upon different aspects of human life and daily activities regardless of national borders, geographical areas or territorial boundaries. Even though there are several advantages brought by globalization along the process, for the majority of the population, especially the marginalized poor who are on the verge of economic life or at the lower strata of the society, this process become an alarming movement that threaten their very existence and survival. This book attempts to respond to the challenges posed by the process of globalization on the life of the tribal people. It tries to analyze the problems caused by the process of globalization and propose an appropriate response to the problems from the tribal perspective.

The author argues that although the promoters of globalization assume that "There is no alternative" (TINA) to globalization, there are rich tribal traditional resources that could provide suitable response capable enough to bring vital solutions to the diverse problems imposed by the process of globalization. Formulating authentic and meaningful theology relevant to the context of tribal people in the contemporary present day era of globalization entails serious continuous effort to rediscover and reinterpret the lost tradition of the tribal people that has been ignored and sidelined for so long making them relevant to the daily life struggles and experiences of the people.

Contents: Introduction. 1. The Khasi setting. 2. Globalization : an overview. 3. India and globalization. 4. The challenges of globalization to tribal economy: Khasi perspective. 5. An indigenous Khasi tribal theological response. Conclusion. Bibliography.
