Tea Tribes Discover Their Roots

Dibrugarh in Assam has a rich culture of diverse tribes and ethnic communities. We joined hands with Jalan Tea Estate Management to explore the possibilities of creating a meaningful engagement and improving the quality of life of the tea tribes in five tea gardens of Dibrugarh, using our culture-based approach.

During the course of engaging with the tribes of one of these tea estates, it was learnt that they were originally residents of Kalahandi in Odisha and their ancestors had migrated to Assam more than a hundred years back during British rule. Taking a cue from this revelation, a Bajasal folk dance team from Kalahandi was brought to Dibrugarh for a workshop as part of the strategy of making inroads into the community. The Bajasal folk dance troupe stirred up faint memories among the elders and generated great interest among the youngsters. They were all eager to learn more about their roots. The community’s enthusiastic participation made the exchange workshop a big success.

The experience and response from the community encouraged UNESCO, who were interested in exploring the possibilities of introducing traditional and culture-based alternative livelihood options for the tea tribes. We, as UNESCO partner, undertook a study for the same. It involved field surveys to map the art and craft forms as well as semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions to understand the existing cultural traditions and inclinations of the people. A SWOT analysis of the folk traditions was also done. The study revealed that the participants were inclined to safeguard their traditions and pursue them as a viable means of livelihood. The findings also underscored the efficacy of applying the Art for Life methodology for socio-economic empowerment of marginalised communities.
