To understand India’s tribal or “Adivasi” culture, explore how it is being portrayed in a modern context. Here you find some suggestions to help you to quickly find video contents for educational purposes

Use the “Search this website” or “Search” field

  • Search by state, region or place (e.g. Kerala, Bastar, Ranchi)
  • Combine any of these with a name (e.g. person, educational institution or museum)
  • Combine two or more keywords (e.g. “Santal book” or “Warli instrument”)

e.g. Video on this website is readily found by typing “video” and any other word or name a word or name into the Search this website field (e.g. “video kota”).

Browse video contents by “Category”
