STORIES are at the heart of any tribal community.
Most of our history is passed down by word of mouth in the form of fables, myths, legends, rituals or folktales. It is at the threshold of being lost forever. This website details the work of an organisation that attempts to preserve some of the stories.
It is organising a three-day festival in Bengaluru in the last week of September, which will bring together storytellers—from shamans to medicine men to the elderly.
It will bring them under one roof to share not only their rich folklore but also—and perhaps more importantly—their wealth of community knowledge such as myths, legends, beliefs, practices, medicine, spirituality and so on, all of which are on the verge of near extinction. It can help revive interest in the value of oral storytelling both within and outside the participating communities.
