About the author

Verrier Elwin

Verrier Elwin (1902-64) was unquestionably the pioneering scholar of India's tribal peoples. His anthropological studies and popular books on tribal custom, art, myth, and folklore were pathbreaking both for anthropology and the awareness of cultural diversity in the subcontinent. An ardent advocate of the rights of the tribal peoples, Elwin was also, from 1954 to his death in 1964, an advisor on tribal affairs to the Government of India.
