The Santals, a major tribal group of India, are known for their Hul, an important rebellion led by charismatic heroes in 1855-7, and analyzed by subaltern historians as conveying political and intellectual concerns, such as peasant consciousness, pertinent to post-colonial India. After the rebellion, Christian missions were established in the Santal Parganas, among them, the Scandinavian Lutheran missionaries considered the Santals as a nation and wanted to create a Santal National Church, and their presence contributed to reinforce Santal identity.
