Abstract

Kerala is the homeland of multiple tribal communities. The state list of scheduled tribal
communities adds to a total of 37 communities with a population of 364189, according to the census
– 2011. About 1.26 percent of the total population of Kerala comprises of scheduled tribes who are
distributed in high concentrations in Wayanad, Idukki, Palakkad and Kasaragod districts.11Tribal
communities were declassified on the basis of the progress they have made in terms of social and
economic development. Even though they had a well-established culture of depending the forests
resources for sustainable livelihood, the constant changes happening around them with respect to
Globalization, Technological improvement and Cultural and economical transformations made it
necessary for them to adopt to their changing surroundings. The younger generations are more
likely to get exploited since they are more vulnerable and the most marginalized when it comes to
the outside world. In this study, we examine the opportunities created for the ST community by the
scheduled tribes development department in kerala since the vast majority of them stay under the
poverty line and majority of them are illiterate thereby making it very hard for them to organize and
fight for their rights, to get their voices heard and to demand equality in this unequal society which
in most cases treats them as backward communities.
