Tribal Culture and Technology

Apoorvaa Pandit (Author)
Synopsis Its is increasingly acknowledged that tribal people have their own effective systematic knowledge and resource use practices and that to assist them we need to understand their knowledge and management systems. The present book extends this understanding by a detailed enquiry into tribal technologies. The study has documented the indigenous knowledge, tools, techniques and practices of the tribal people, specifically related to Agriculture, animal Husbandry, Housing Household tools, Food gathering and processing, Fishing, Hunting, Rope making and Medicine. The book explores the interrelationship between technology, culture and environment. Significant are the discussions on “Characteristics of Tribal Technology and “Culture and Technology”. Diagrams are used to illustrate the multi-faceted and integrative nature of tribal technology. The book provides data on the basis of which a holistic programme for conservation and development based on ecological, economic and social considerations could be worked out for a tribal area. It is important also from the viewpoint of conserving culture and biological diversity for the welfare of mankind. The book will be highly useful for anthropologists, students of tribal studies and schools and universities alike
