“World Indigenous Day” was celebrated in the capital of Jharkhand, Ranchi, by hundreds of the Tribal people of Ranchi. The people gathered at Sainic market and the procession began with drumming by a special group.

The procession included music, dance and slogans exhibiting tribal unity, affirming their identity, claiming their rights and demanding justice against their oppression and justice for the tribal people of Manipur.

It was a huge procession on the main road and concluded at Albert Ekka Chauk with dancing in several groups. Four Sisters and seven candidates from the Ranchi community participated in this celebration. It, indeed, was an experience of joy, unity and strength.
