TRIBAL AND ADIVASI SUNDAY

August 7

Tribal and Adivasi women are the backbone of indigenous peoples’ communities and play a crucial role in the preservation and transmission of traditional ancestral knowledge. They have an integral collective and community role as carers of natural resources and keepers of scientific knowledge. Many Tribal and Adivasi women are also taking the lead in the defence of lands and territories and advocating for indigenous peoples’ collective rights worldwide. The theme for this year’s Tribal and Adivasi Sunday is “ The Role of Tribal and Adivasi Women in the Preservation and Transmission of Traditional Knowledge” and we have prepared a special Order of Worship for the day. You may please take the freedom to use the entire worship order and translate it in your vernacular language or adapt parts of it. We sincerely hope that the observance of this special NCCI Tribal and Adivasi Sunday will be an enriching one in our faith affirmation and commitment and for widening the horizon of our ecumenical journey.

Over the years Tribal and Adivasi Sunday has been celebrated in many parts of our country in sensitizing the local congregation on Tribal and Adivasi Concerns. Thanks to the enormous support we have received from across the churches, dioceses, parishes and institutions in celebrating this special Sunday. This year also we are inviting you to observe Tribal and Adivasi Sunday on 7th August in your churches/local parishes/institutions.

Let us join to celebrate Tribal and Adivasi Sunday on 7th August 2022.
