Day 1

(Learning Engagement 1)

Facilitator will show a very short video on the Indian tribes and after the video, will ask
several questions. A small discussion will follow. (Newspaper clipping can be used to take
students from known to unknown in case video cant be played. Newspaper clippings can
include various problems tribal people are facing today, some important achievement, etc.)

Do they have a different culture, religion?

Are these tribes aggressive by nature, or calm?

What about their political system? Do they have a chief? Are they democratic?

Did you get to know about some of the economic activities of tribal people? What sort of
activities do they engage in?

This question will lead us to the first topic at hand. Students will be able to identify the
economic activities of tribal groups and with the help of the facilitator, they will learn about
the 4 major ways of lives for tribals: jhum cultivation, Settled agriculture, Hunters and
gatherers, and herding.
