The Munda are tribal (Adivasi) people of the Chota Nagpur Plateau region.
They are found across Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Orissa and Assam states of India, and into parts of Bangladesh. Their language is Mundari, which belongs to the Munda subgroup of the Austro-Asiatic language family.
There are estimated to be two million Munda people.
The term Munda designates the name of the leader of the tribal community. The munda call themselves “Hodoko” which means “Human Beings”.
