Tribals Seek Harmony

Roshan brings us a story from the Kokna tribes of Dang, Gujarat. Koknas are a Hindu-tribal group. They worship nature and local village deities. Koknas are well-known artisans. Their wood carved masks, depicting natural spirits such as the sun, moon, tiger and peacock, are unique within the region. Koknas are primarily an agrarian people and firmly believe all needs in life can be sustained from the earth.
Koknas exist within the dramatic political and communal context of Gujarat. In a state where communal tension remains high, Koknas look to build a more peaceful existence outside of this.
In this video, Roshan reports on how Koknas seek harmony with nature amidst turmoil between faiths.
