Abstract


All these tribal communities are in rapid transition. The Kanikkar or the Kani have been slow to wake upto the reality of the situation but now among them are protesting and looking for a way out of the situation. The improvement of communication has brought the Kanikkar in to contact with outside influences and with the dregs of humanity from the low country, with the result that they have futon in morals. The pace of so called civilising influences has been so rapid that they have been hustled out of their old existence in virgin forests where they led their old life, unknown and undisturbed.Instead of old huts, concrete floors, power and water connections are still present in many Adivasi areas. In some places are combined with traditional and modern techniques. There changes become more widespread as financial assistance was provided to the different Government agencies.
