Bon O Boner Adhibasi

Bon O Boner Adhibasi cover

Bon O Boner Adhibasi (Forest and Forest People) is a booklet that compiles information and insights presented at a national seminar on forest, forest people and forest culture held in 1994. Adivasis, environmentalists, activists, politicians, academics, etc. attended the seminar. SEHD presented its findings of investigation and action-oriented research on critical concerns in the public forestland. Issues concerning commercial and industrial plantations were also discussed at the seminar.

The participants insisted that the Adivasis are the true custodians of forest and biodiversity, but instead of getting protection, they face consistent harassment and false cases. They also have been progressively losing their customary land rights and access to forest resources.
