Hill Korwas of Chhatisgarh

B.R. Rizvi (Author)
Synopsis It is a pioneering work in tribal ethnography on Hill Korwas of Chhatisgarh - a primitive tribe practising food-gathering, hunting and shifting cultivation. The research-based work describes the tribe in an analytical frame of reference covering the first 25 years of India’s independence. It is a methodical analysis of not only the economic structure but also the social and ritual life of the Hill Korwas. The origin of the tribe has been described with its various clan names, the details of housing pattern, implements used for earning their livelihood, including fishing traps, bird traps, and weapons, etc., described in graphic details. The study brings out some of the serious constraints which stand in the way of socio-economic development of the tribe such as lack of educational opportunities, lack of employment opportunities, and lack of transport and communication facilities, etc. The panoramic insight into the history, life-style, society, language, customs etc., of the Hill Korwas makes it a delightful study for all those interested in tribal affairs as scholar, researcher, administrator and development planner.
