The ‘Samvaad: A tribal conclave’ coincides with the birth anniversary of Birsa Munda, who fought for the rights of tribals, and Jharkhand’s formation day.
The event is being represented by delegates of 40 indigenous tribes like the Santal community of Jharkhand, Siddis of Gujarat, Irulas of Kerala, Bodos from Assam, Dhurwa tribe of Odisha, Karubas from Karnataka and Konda Reddis from Andhra Pradesh, among others.
