Description
Summary:This collection of 4 documents deals with the Kol tribe living in Madhya Pradesh (formerly a major portion of the colonial era Central Provinces), and in Uttar Pradesh states of India. The major document is Griffiths (1946), written by a Methodist minister who spent fifteen years in Jubbulpore in the Central Provinces. Most of the material he collected refers to the Hinduized Kol, rather than those in the interior of the Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh whose customs differ somewhat in form and extent. Data include information on nearly all aspects of Kol ethnography such as the life cycle, social structure, marriage, religion, the family, magic and witchcraft, folklore, fine arts, and economics. Joshi (2003) presents a study of the distribution of land to Kol tribals in the Chitrakoot district in Uttar Pradesh. Much of the emphasis in this work concentrates on the role of a civil society organization called the Akhil Bharatiya Samaj Sewa Sansthan (ABSSS) in implementing the government's program in providing land to the poor and disadvantaged individuals in the society. Singh and Tripathi (2010) describe the case of the Kol people working as bonded laborers in the stone quarries and silica sand mines near Allahbad, India. The authors analyze the various conditions and factors that have been responsible for keeping the workers in this bonded condition for many generations.
