This video has been shared by Arundathi and Shobha, activists and theatre artists, who put together their work under the name of Mahua Tripps. They traveled to Niyamgiri and attended the annual festival celebrated by the peoples movement, Niyamgiri Surakhya Samiti. They stayed back for a few days in Lakhpadar village. This video and the stories of their travel is being shared as suggested by some of the residents of Lakhpadar. The adivasi families in Lakhpadar, who hosted the travellers, helped them understand more about what the struggle to protect their legal rights over the forests and hills that have been painstakingly nurtured, mean to them and generations to come.
