This study attempts to identify some key cultural practices, belief systems and aesthetic expressions, as illustrative cases, that might be contributing to present day adivasi ethnic identity; uncovering their basis, if any, in the life and agricultural cycles, and the struggle for livelihood; thus, analyzing the relation between ethnic identity and class as a politico economic identity; interpreting the essential elements of the belief systems underlying contemporary ritual practices and accompanying incantations and identifying the residual travces, if any, of the ancient Lokayata materialist philosophy, as some scholars have suggested; and finally, drawing out the significance of the foregoing for a theory and practice of adivasi identity within processes of hegemonically structured, social transformation.
