Ethnocide vs Ethnicity A Study on Tiwas

Author Name: Dr. Lakhinanda Bordoloi | Format: Paperback | Genre : Educational & Professional | Other Details

The term ethnocide refers to the destruction of a culture without the killing of its bearers.  It often leaves lasting scars on the affected ethnic group, eroding their sense of distinct identity and disconnecting them from their historical roots. The process among the Tiwa tribe of North East India led to their identity crisis. This book provides a panoramic view of ethnocide versus ethnicity manifested among them. Over the years they have suffered from problems of loss of language and cultures. By integrating ethnographic and ethical perspectives on the tribe, this book underscores the complex challenges in safeguarding cultural diversity of ethnic groups in a multi-ethnic country like India.
