More on North Indian Tribes (2 Articles)
 North India can only be understood as a mirrored and conscious conception, but not as a place that can be assimilated by mere reading. Comprising enormous states like Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand (previously popular as Uttaranchal), north India redefines and redraws lines of heavenly beauty and the Himalayan panorama. Perhaps vast Himalayan nooks hidden in the ranges are still waiting to be explored, with fresh news in the offering. North India is also a region that has in the last couple of decades witnessed surging growth in every sphere of development. This also wholly encompasses the north Indian tribes, towards whom huge attention and interest is laid each year through visits and tours. Anthropologists have been credited with their extensive workings amongst the indigenous tribes that reside in the steep terrains of the lofty Himalayas. Terra firma of the mountains bears intense proofs of the north Indian tribes and their daily life from historical accounts.
Tribes of Himachal Pradesh
Tribes of Himachal Pradesh can be singled out for their looks, good conduct and religious behaviour towards every kind of situations and places. Revelry and merry-making makes the order of day for these north Indian tribes, with their occupations and daily earning bread being cattle rearing and spinning of wool.

Tribes of Jammu and Kashmir have strictly descended from the Indo-Aryan group of people, which can be credited for the sublime beauty of this exceptional north Indian tribe. With a number of tribes residing in the mountainous regions of the Himalayas, Jammu and Kashmir tribesmen are remarkable for their dressings and ornate ornamentation. With normal Indian food being their staple diet, these north Indian tribes believe in both Hinduism and Islam. Modernisation has been able to touch the Kashmiri tribes, with man-to-man interaction made triumphant.

Punjab with its inimitable culture of its own, its mustard and sunflower plantations, the indigenous woollen capability, the unique way of cooking their food, tribesmen in Punjab complete a massive calculation under the north Indian tribes. With ample anthropologists' information available, tribes of Punjab can be identified by their striking dresses, colourful attire and mellifluous songs.

Tribes of Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand comprise a colossal portion under the north Indian tribal section, with variety speaking out from every section and every sphere of daily life. A part of Uttar Pradesh, basically the tribal areas with the districts of Dehradun, Uttarkashi, Tehri Garhwal, Rudraprayag, Chamoli, Hardwar, Pauri Garhwal, Bageshwar, Pithoragarh, Almora, Nainital, Champawat and Udham Singh Nagar has been formed into a new state Uttarakhand. So a considerable part of the tribal population falls now under the state of Uttarakhand. However, the population of the tribal communities in the state is not large enough. They constitute the weakest section of the society and form distinct ethnic groups which have maintained their own separate cultural identities in their original environment, despite the ravages of time.

Tribes in Haryana basically are consisted of nomadic and semi-nomadic individuals, with a somewhat dilapidated condition of their social and economic condition. There are approximately twenty-five denotified nomadic tribes, with their total count exceeding 15 lakh. These tribes hence have to offer every new thing from every new sphere of living, regarding in food, culture, dress or customs of ceremonies.

North Indian tribes, with their multicolored existence, saturated in prehistoric wonder, are placed simultaneously in richness and backwardness, overshadowing cosmopolitanism from every angle.
