"Human Ecology of Foragers" is a pioneering study on the foragers or
socalled hunters and food-gatherers of Similipal Hills, Orissa (India).
Though hunting and food-gathering ways of life have been considered the most
archaic as well as successful adaptation man has ever achieved, in view of
the rapidly changing world today, anthropologists apprehend that no such
culturers will be left for future study. Such an apprehension has primarily
initiated the necessity for the present study on the foragers.
Keeping in view the factors of extinction of the foragers, secondary
primitivization of the agricultural tribes and the acculturation of the
primitive tribes, the study has thrown light on the life and cultures of the
forest-based Hill Kharia (in the book as Kharia (Savara), Ujia (Savara) and
Birhor in Similipal hills both diachronically and synchronically.
The book is original in the context that it has been prepared out of
two-years of field work in the Similipal Biosphere Reserve. Keeping
empirically a critical ethnographic record of the techno-economic conditions
of three peoples, the book has vividy discussed the cultural orientation of
the peoples toward the forest ecosystem and their overall economic
development achieved by self-made efforts as well as Government Welfare
Programmes. The study has mainly reflected that such modern fragers are
dependent more on the food-gathering activities than hunting. Besides the
established facts that "hunting is a high risk and low return subsistence
activity" and "vegetable foods are abundant in nature", mainly because of
the present forest conservation policy of India, gathering of renewable
resources has been the primary occupation of the Similipal forages.
