“It becomes necessary to privilege the oral over the written, and myth over history [and] the established institutions of managing memory stand to gain by the theoretical complexities posed by the Adivasi heritage to the current museum practices in India.” – Ganesh Devy, founding member of the Adivasi Academy at Tejgadh and BHASHA Research and Publication Centre Baroda (Gujarat)

The Academy is devoted to the study of Adivasi history, folklore, cultural geography, social dynamics, economy, development studies, medicine, music, arts and theatre. With its multidisciplinary approach and related interventional measures, the Adivasi Academy constantly strives to create new approaches to academics and social, cultural and developmental interventions.
