"Among the Original Inhabitants of Kerala" State of Kerala by cochinjew

Just a short ride away from Cochin, starting at the Athirapilly falls, one comes across the colonies of the original people of this area, generically called Adivasi, just like the Canadian Indians are called First Nations. I was very excited to meet them and their acquaintance would draw me more to the state as I plan to conceive of a project which will help them socially, and medically.
