“Every spring, as the snow begins to melt in the mountains, the nomadic tribe of Van Gujjars embarks on an epic journey in search of the best pastures for their buffaloes. Here is the story of this peaceful, forest dwelling tribe and their journey across high plains, treacherous passes and picturesque Himalayan valleys.” – Sanchari Pal in “Nomads of the Himalayas: A Fascinating Glimpse into the Rarely-Seen Forest World of the Van Gujjars” (The Better India, 3 September 2016)

“Uttar Pradesh is the most populous state of the country but has a small tribal population. They constitute the weakest section of the society and form distinct ethnic groups which have preserved their own separate culture identities in their original environment despite the ravages of time. […] The State has a total of five major Scheduled Tribes [Tharu, Buksa, Jaunsari, Raji & Bhotia] and about 18 other tribal groups. The tribal population of the State is predominantly rural.” – Mohammad Awais, PhD thesis 2012 titled “An analytical study of socio-economic conditions of tribal farmers in Bijnor district of U.P. State”
