Doddasampige | ದೊಡ್ಡಸಂಪಾಗೆ

Doddasampige | ದೊಡ್ಡಸಂಪಾಗೆ is an annotated collection of indigenous/Adivasi and related scholarship that is largely relevant to or contextualised/interpreted to/for southern India, specifically the area in the tri-junction of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Although the curation is a bit biased towards the Adivasi communities in Karnataka portions of this region, the material will relate to Adivasis living in/around forested regions in other parts of southern India as well.

Some of the items in this colleciton are in the process of being made physically available at the IPH Bengaluru Field Station at BR Hills. Those interested can visit the library called Kaanu (ಕಾನು) BR Hills, Chamarajanagar district, Karnataka (India) as well as see an online complement of Kaanu here

This is an open and free collaborative initiative to curate published and other forms of knowledge of, about and in some instances originating from Adivasi communities and their lands southern India. The name of the collection is from ದೊಡ್ಡಸಂಪಾಗೆ, a large Magnolia champaca tree deep inside Biligirirangaswamy Temple Tiger Reserve. The English spelling has been modified and does not reflect the pronunciation in the Solega language

Colonial and several post-colonial historical work does not acknowledge Adivasi individuals or the overall Adivasi community's contributions and scholarship, so the collection too reflects this. The collection shall aim to also include traditional and non-formal knowledge types wherever possible. Any archived material here is either in public domain or has been specifically consented to be featured on this archive during its curation/collection. Some of the collections and contributions were spin-offs during fieldwork under Towards Health Equity & Transformative Action on tribal health project and the effort receives support as a public engagement activity under the DBT/Wellcome Trust India Alliance supported Center for Training Research and Innovation in Tribal Health.

This aims to be a collaborative project, so you are welcome to create your own account and add to the collection.
