Project Description

Introduction

Heritage is a fundamental source of individual and group identity, vitality, and solidarity. Heritage is a universal process by which humans maintain connections with our pasts, assert our similarities with and differences from one another, and tell our children and other young people what we think is important and deserves to be part of the future. Traditional languages were disappearing, and ancestral forms of conflict resolution within communities were disintegrating. Also, during this time, the federal government became aware of the difficulty tribal communities were having in retaining cohesion. Tribal governments as well as the federal government began investigating ways to halt degradation of traditional cultures.

India has been a subject of intense interest to a wide variety of peoples from all corners of the ancient and the modern world throughout the millennia. There are many reasons for this intense and sustained interest, not least among them being the considerable prowess of the ancient Indic in matters of scholarship, relating to the exact sciences. The Indian university system of the ancient era was world renowned and attracted student from a wide variety of countries. Tribal Indology is to the academic study of the history, languages, and cultures of the tribal in Indian subcontinent. Strictly speaking it encompasses the study of the languages, scripts of all of Asia that was influenced by Indic culture.

KISS Tribal Heritage

The number of tribal museums in India increases every year. Currently, there are over one hundred numbers of tribal museums and cultural centers in India. Since, traditional forms of tribal heritage transmitters are decreasing under the pressures of industrialization, poverty, and the more dominant Hindu society, the presence of these museums is critical to the perpetuation of heritage in many tribal communities in India and particularly in Odisha.

Everything which the ancestors bequeath may be called heritage: landscapes, structures, objects, traditions. Humans have understood the concept of heritage ever since they developed artefacts and language of tribal communities while Tribal Indology is to the academic study of the history, languages, and cultures of the tribes in Indian.
