It was common place in anthropological literature until recently to identify the contributions that each social stock has made to the composite heritage of India in terms of local customs, beliefs and practices. One feature of the post independence tribals scenario in the emergence of the tribal people as distinct category of population. The development in recent years has been the tribals own attempts to define their identity. A vast body of literature has developed. The tribes has begun writing in their own language in many areas such as poetry, history as they perceive it, and political text articulturating their relationship with the larger society. One is struck by the magnitude of such sndogenous efforts to define and sustain tribal idebntity in various ways. One has only to visit the exhibitions organized by the tribal people themselves covering the entire tribal gamut, their life and culture in order to understand how they perceive their identity in its multiple forms and project it at various levels and how they are keen to preserve it. How to revitalize the best in disappearing culture which is under drastie transition? One of the ways of providing impetus to the attempt to retain what is good among to tribal and which speaks of their heritage is to strengthen what is disintegrating. This is best possible by creation of tribal museums, where their material and non-material life can be depicted. They should also be made to realize of importance of what is more valuable among them so that they can preserve the same.
