Tribals Of Jashpur

Pahadi Korwa

The Korwa people are an Indian Munda ethnic group. They mostly live along the state line between Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. A limited number of Korwa can also be found in Uttar Pradesh’s Mirzapur district. Korwa is a Chhattisgarh tribe that lives primarily in the high forest areas of Korba district. Their population has declined over time, and they are now classified as one of Chhattisgarh’s special backward tribes. Jashpurnagar. The Korwa tribe, which once dominated Jashpur, is on the verge of extinction. Politics was well done in the name of this specially protected tribe trapped in the quagmire of poverty, illiteracy, and unemployment, but they are still far from the stage of progress at which they were said to have arrived.



There are various sub-castes in Urvan civilization. Other farmers are among them. The Urvan have traditionally relied on forests and fields for their existence. Members of the Urvan ethnic group have settled in the country’s north-eastern region, where they work in various tea gardens.

Hinduism, Christianity, and the tribe’s own religion are all practised by the tribe. Folk music, traditional instruments, dances, and storytelling are all part of the Urvan tribe’s culture. Dance ceremonies are conducted at social festivals and other events by both male and female members of the tribal community.

They speak the Birhor language, which is part of the Munda language family of Austroasiatic languages.

Despite being surrounded by such natural beauty, the Pando are nonetheless on the bottom of the economic ladder. They make a living by farming on a small basis. Their revenue is supplemented by daily labour, cultivation, cattle, birds, and forest produce. They do not, however, have access to basic services such as power, roads, or health care. In the event of an emergency, there isn’t a single health centre where people can go. Government-run nursery and elementary schools exist in a few Pando villages. They, on the other hand, show no interest in education. A language survey was recently completed, and we are hopeful that work on Scripture translation will begin among the Pando. Mission work has a lot of potential and a lot of need in our community. Let us pray to the Lord of the Harvest for the harvest.

Kanwar is a significant tribal community in Jashpur. Their outfits are simple and inexpensive. Men wear thick dhotis, Ganji, Anga, Gumbha, sarees, and occasionally blouses. Tattooing is very common. However, there is no particular emphasis on this. Their women have jewels, but due to poor economic conditions, they wear jewelery made from some of the cheapest weaponry. The flower belt can also be used as a cosmetic tool.
