Invitation for Conference on Niyamgiri, a Test Case for Forest Right

Posted on Monday, August 2nd, 2010

The Dongria Kondh and other tribes inhabiting the Niyamgiri forests have been resisting the threat of Mining of Bauxite in their sacred mountain. Niyamgiri means the mountain (Giri) that upholds the Earth and the law of the Universe (Niyam). The most significant contribution of these bauxite hills like Niyamgiri is provision of water.
