The People


Dress and Ornaments

Simplicity and plainness are the twin characteristics of the dress of the tribal people. Most of them use a narrow piece of cloth tied round
the waist. They keep two sets of dresses one for home and the other for outside wear. They wear dhotis and saris while going out. Tribal ,women are excessively found of ornaments. They have a craze for hansli (a kind of necklace made of silver) brass bracelets and silver earrings. They are famed for keeping their hair tidy by applying mustard or mouha oil and combing it regularly. Tattooing the forehead arms and legs is a common practice with them. This custom is originated from their age old belief in magic.
