Gond dancers at Sawra, Pench

Villagers at Sawra (near Pench, Maharashtra) have decided to revive their traditional dances in an effort to preserve and showcase their rich culture. SF is encouraging this initiative. It is hoped that tourists going to Pench National Park will also visit local villages to understand the tribal traditions of the area.

The video shows one of the dancers' practice sessions at the village school.
