RE: tribes in orissa
Mostly the Orissa tribes are high land habitats with opulent ethnic trait, cultures and customs dominated by varying languages. The culture conscious tribes are able to preserve their social customs and dignified values. The most primitive tribes are Bondas, Gadabas, Koyas, Kondhas and Sauras. The tribes have adapted the Hindu traditions and culture from centuries, which is mixed with their own culture giving a distinct zest to the entire racial. Songs and dances are the essence of the tribal culture of Orissa. Weekly "market days", when the local tribal people come to buy goods, give you the perfect opportunity to see the various tribes close at hand. You will meet people with distinct features, and decorated with facial and hand tattoos, layers of beads covering bare breasts, piles of aluminum necklaces and a multitude of earrings.
You can exlplore the Rayagada and jaypore disticts.Just remember that there had been instances in orrisa that christian missionaries come here try to lure the poor tribals and convert them to christianity.This can spark off troubles so just enjoy as a traveller only and not indulg in any missopnary activity.
