Main Article Content
Indigenous peoples have distinguished cultural traditions and linguistic identity. Across the world, Indigenous peoples have always asked the State to recognise their social structure and opportunities to preserve their traditional lifestyles. The issues at stake are their rights over habitat and natural resources and the need to curtail private and public sector exploitation through alien hands. Due to the need to survive, helplessness and systematically forced assimilation, the traditional fabric of their culture are being distorted and defaced. This study deals with the concerns and issues relating to the protection of identity, tradition and customs of Ho tribe that inhabits the West Singhbhum in the State of Jharkhand in India.
