'Plight Of The Khasi Tribe'

by adrian 9. July 2012 10:28

Verging on extinction – this is the scenario for many of the world’s ancient tribes along with their traditions and cultures. Yet many of these tribes have much to offer today’s modern mainstream world. The Khasi Tribe of Meghalaya is one such tribe.

'Plight Of The Khasi Tribe'


In this high tech material world we have created (we live in today) there is now a great emphasis for us all to generate more consideration for the environment.

But this is not a new phenomenon. Some ‘lesser’ mortals have been dependent on the environment for their sustainability for generations. Their lifestyle has been one of harmonising with nature

Meghalaya is one of India’s youngest states only coming into fruition in 1972 and at this point in time gave this states major tribes their own tribal lands - the Garos, the Jantia, and the largest tribe the Khasi.

Relying on nature and the environment for their sustainability over the generations the Khasi people have learnt how to work with, and use nature and the environment - not destructively, but in a sustainable way. Passing this knowledge on down through the generations.

In relative terms many areas of Meghalaya are unspoilt – mountains still covered with a variety of trees and vegetation through which many crystal clear rivers and streams flow, and where a vast variety of flora and fauna thrives - nature at its best. The question is how long will this last in our ‘modern’ world.

Possibly the best chance is if left to tribes people like the Khasi

For many of the Khasi tribe their very existence is harmonising with nature and for them the material world means far less.

There is a great deal that the ‘modern’ mainstream world can learn and benefit from these people’s bountiful ancient traditional knowledge.

By no means should these traditional tribes be dismissed and forgotten.

But there is great concern amongst the Khasi about the demise of their ancient traditions and culture particularly those concerning the environment, health, language and possibly one of the most important, the Elders.
