Adivasi Arts Trust, an organisation that promotes awareness of Indian tribal culture, and works with the tribes involving them in digital media projects to make their arts more widely accessible. It is driven by the gifted British digital animator Tara Douglas who was born in India. Adivasi’s work include the amazing Tales of the Tribes, a collection of five short animation films based on indigenous folktales from India.
The five stories are:
Manjoor Jhali (the Story of the Peacock) from the Pardhan Gonds of Madhya Pradesh, Man Tiger Spirit from the Angami of Nagaland, Abotani from the Tani tribes of Arunachal Pradesh, Nye Mayel Kyong from the Lepcha of Sikkim and Tapta from the Meitei of Manipur.
