Dokri and her Kondh community live in the remote hill range of Niyamgiri in the state of Odisha. India’s indigenous people–known as Adivasi, or first people–have lived in these forested areas for hundreds of years.

The kondh community are seen as the gate keepers to these remote, resource rich fragile ecosystems. Maintaining a fine balance between their survival and the exploitation of their environments.
