Cultural Mapping

Internal, culturalm001

Cultural Mapping is a project initiated by the ICH Division INTACH, to do a complete mapping of all the major and minor tribes and communities of India so as to develop an understanding about their socio-cultural scenario. It is also important to document their traditional practices as a first step to safeguard these practices and ensure their survival. Cultural mapping as a tool for exploring and understanding cultural diversity helps to look at all the aspects of a community's cultural life as "community assets" with an understanding of how these resources bring value to human and community life and are very often connected to livelihoods.

The below are the few outputs derived from the project.
