Adivasi Woman : a Clamour for Remembrance

Ana Garcia-Arroyo

Abstract


Through an innovative methodology that combines the academic essay and poetic creative writing, this paper aims to present an overview of the historical evolution of the adivasi, mainly focussing on the origin of the major problems from colonial times until contemporary days. The focus of study is the adivasi woman of the south-east regions of Orissa, also the santhal woman of West Bengal.
