The Kadar are a fairly small society in southern India, residing along the hilly border between Cochin in the state of Kerala and Coimbatore in the state of Tamil Nādu.
Kadar live in the forests and do not practice agriculture. They are, however, specialized collectors of honey, wax, sago, cardamom, ginger, and umbrella sticks.
The Kadar are also pretty well known for being exceptionally honest and non-violent people; at least in the past. Increased contact with modern civilization has had a demoralizing effect on the Kadar.
