Problems of Tribal Adjustment

Problems of Tribal Adjustment

(p.199) Chapter 8 Problems of Tribal Adjustment
The Kamar

S.C. Dube

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the problems of tribal adjustment brought about by the Kamars' cultural contacts. It notes that the Kamars would have to pay close attention to the four primary sources of their livelihood. It identifies the co-operations and Acts that would change the Kamars' way of life, such as the Land Alienation Act and the Multi-Purpose Co-operative Organizations. It then addresses the effects of the elimination of the money-lenders in Kamar society, the reorganization of the administrative system, and the introduction of education into the tribes. Finally, the chapter focuses on the problem of public health and sanitation that the Kamars face, and the presence of certain unacceptable practices, such as forced labour. The attitudes towards these changes are also considered.
