Project Description

Introduction

In India, most Indigenous people identify strongly with a traditional language identity. The tribe with which they identify is a language group and in the great majority of cases, the tribal name is the language name.
In Tribal societies, cultural heritage and knowledge is passed on throughout each generation by language. Language is an essential part of, and intrinsically linked to, indigenous peoples’ ways of life, culture and identities. Languages embody many indigenous values and concepts and contain indigenous peoples’ histories and development. They are fundamental markers of indigenous peoples’ distinctiveness and cohesiveness as peoples.

KISS Tribal Language

This Paper discusses what Tribal languages mean to Tribal people. It explores the link between language and culture and how that shapes the sense of identity. It discusses cultural knowledge, kinship, song-lines and stories which are reliant on language in order for these important cultural elements to be passed on from generation to generation. Through this, the value of giving attention to and recognition of Tribal languages for all (Odisha’s) is considered.

A better understanding and recognition of Tribal languages will assist in the process of reconciliation between Tribal and non-Tribal. This course also discusses the importance of promoting Tribal languages as a valuable and historical part of India’s cultural heritage and considers how Tribal languages can help to Bridge the gap on Tribal disadvantage. Lastly, this course provides an overview of Tribal languages and the current use of Tribal Languages in India & Odisha.
