The tribal Communities in India constitute an important section of our society. Even though they are numerically insignificant, their rich culture and unique way of life always attract the society. This book examines the Medical practices and Healing rituals existing in two tribal communities of Kerala in order to evaluate the changes occurring in the traditional medical system as a result of the influence of modern medicine. An attempt is made by The Author to understand the challenges of medical pluralism upon ethnomedicine and the ways in which this system manages to survive (even though in a subdued manner) in a period of general social change which is occurring as a result of various tribal welfare measures of the government and also with increased interaction with the nontribals. The present Investigation treats the ethnomedicine of Tribals not as a set of abstract beliefs and exotic practices, or in isolation, but as an essential part of the tribal social structure. As the various ethnomedical beliefs and practices are closely interrelated with the social organization, Religious beliefs and life crises, due attention has been given to each one of them. A better understanding of the tribal concepts of Disease and Etiology and a Knowledge of their indigenous Medicines can help the planners and administrators to develop appropriate Health care programmes for the benefit of tribal communities in India.
