Tribals are known to be the autochthonous people of the land. Tribals are often referred to ‘adivasi’, ‘vanvasi’, ‘pahari’, ‘adimjati’, ‘anusuchit janjati’, etc. India has the second largest tribal population in the world, the first being Africa and tribal Communities are the integral segment of Indian society. India, with a variety of ecosystems, presents a varied tribal population throughout its length and breadth depicting a complex cultural mosaic. India is a home for large number of tribal people, known as “ADVASI”. Nearly all the tribal people of India have been in almost continuous contact with their neighbours, who live by farming and a large number of specialized manual industries (Bose, 1971 : 2). This contact goes back, at least, to the days of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata; for in them there are references to tribal communities who are referred to as Jana. When, in his exile, Rama reached the borders of the forests of Central India, the land was introduced to him as the abode of the tribal people, Janasthana
