On the issue of relationship between the tribal people and the caster-Hindus in India, we find two different views. One is that many social and cultural traditions of the Hindu Great Tradition have organic links with the Tribal Society and Culture. On the other hand, some maintain that the Tribal and the Hindu traditions are separate; tribal people do not have more than casual contacts with the caster-Hindus. However, varied nature of social realities suggest coexistence of tribal as well as caste characteristics is a given empirical situation though Sanskritisation, Hinduisation and Aryanisation etc. are widely introduced and developed by the scholars to study social and cultural change among the tribal people in India.
