People of Jharkhand

Jharkhand was carved out of southern Bihar, home to several tribes. Prominent among them are the Mundas, the earliest tribal settlers in the area. The Santhals are the last of the tribes to settle down here. Hence the people and culture of Jharkhand is drenched in traditions.

The tribal people of the state live in villages and are dependent on agriculture to earn their livelihood but since they have not been exposed to modern techniques of farming they follow traditional methods.

The tribal people celebrate various festivals and the most prominent festivities during festivals is the performance of tribal songs and dance in groups. Jhumar is a popular dance form performed during festivals and special occasions.
