Adivasi ('original people', or 'first people') are tribal peoples found all over India. They are generally marginalised by the caste structure. The distinction between them and the Dalit communities may be unclear. However the Adivasi are often found separate from other communities as forest dwellers, or living in isolated rural areas.
