Dongria Kondh Mother and Baby Girl
DESCRIPTIONThe Dongria Kondh are one of the 13 designated Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups in Odisha, which are tribes who's traditional way of life is at risk. They are quite poor and live in small villages spread around the dense forest of the Niyamgiri hills of Odisha. They have a strong dependency and spiritual relationship with the forest that they live in, as that is where they believe their God lives.
