Navigating through the Dynamics of Indigenous Communities' Acquisition and Safe-Guarding of Forest Rights

The culture and heritage of India is in the midst of diversity. There are many different tribes, with different regions, languages, customs and traditions, and there are over 50 tribal communities within Karnataka. Their exploitation, which is not known in the writings, is constantly on the rise, in the name of globalization and modernity. Over a crore indigenous person were forced to relocate in the name of industrial development, mining and construction of large dams. Post-independence, the government took up the fundamental task of dividing the land used by them into a politico-economic zone and took measures to preserve their culture without compromising their basic rights. However, frequent law enforcement has been phasing out the common people and forest dwellers from their rights to use and preserve forest wealth.
