The Historians Have Largely Neglected The Tribal History Of Indian. An Attempt Has Been Made In This Study To Trace The History Of Different Tribal Groups Such As Bhils, Girasias, Saharias, Meenas, Mers And Meos. Infact The Present Study Is Mainly Concerned With The Tribal Revolts During 1818-1950 But At The Same Time Proper Attention Has Been Paid To Describe Their Early History. Thus, An Overview Of The Tribal History Has Been Emerged Out In This Study. The Tribals Were The First Who Revolted Against The British Imperialism In India. Infact Most Of The Tribal Groups Were Never Under The Strict Political And Administrative Control Of Any Political Authority In India. The British Were The First Who Tried To Bring The Tribal Under The Circle Of Their Political Hegemony. This Resulted In The Revolts Of Tribals In 19Th Century And Subsequently During First Half Of The 20Th Century These Revolts Culminated Into Organised Movements. This Is The Central Theme Of This Study.The Study Is Based On Wide Range Of Sources Which Include The Gazetteers, Census Reports, Administrative Reports, Famine Reports, Gazettes, Contemporary Books, Atlases And Archival Records Etc.
