Indigenous Food Talk Session
The Santals, the largest homogenous tribe of India, have a legacy of collecting food from their natural surroundings of jungle, hills and water bodies. Though many of them are now dependent on market vegetables, yet they still continue to maintain their traditional food habit of their ancestors found from plants, roots, mushrooms, insects, birds, reptiles and hunted animals. These naturally available foods not only provide them with the required nutrition and rich minerals in their daily diet, but also help in maintaining a sustainable way of life.
The discussion will be on some of the traditional food of Santals and their cooking process and how over the generations the foods have started to lose its originality or have amalgamated with the foods of their neighboring communities.
