Module 4, Post 5 – Tribes in Transition: Conflict over Identity, Resources and Development’

It was indeed heartening to find the proceedings of an international conference on the issues concerning the adivasi people in India. Though I could not access the complete report of the conference, a brief sketch of the topics addressed could be found below. It was great to know that there were mainstream public discussions about important issues ranging from Tribal Cultural Heritage and Conflict over Identity to Tribal Women and Human Trafficking. It just goes on to emphasize the fact that the indigenous communities are uniting for their own rights and concerns and making their voices heard.
