In India, tribal languages are all-pervasive. Languages are named after the tribes or clans. Many spoken languages or tongues have not been put into scripts. Here, I have tried to furnish some of the tribal languages and the regions they originate. Some of the cultural traditions have been referred to. Abor-North India, Adibasi-Bastar district MadhyaPradesh, Angami-Manipur, Apatamis-Arunachalpradesh, Badagas-Nilgiri range, Chenchu-Orissa and Andhra, Gaddi-Himachal, Garo-Assam and Meghalaya, Gond-Bihar, Gujjar-Himachal and Jammu, Bhutia-Gadawal, Kumayun and Bengal, Khasi-Meghalaya and Assam, Kol-Madhyapradesh, Jarwa and Ongi-Andamans, Lusai-Tripura, Oraon-Bihar and Orissa etc. Cultural traditions observed by some of the tribal clans are:-Vitobha and Naagpanchami in Maharastra Jawalamukhi, Fagoon, Gurmali in Himachal Pradesh Onam, Kuram Bishu, Tisk Vollam in Kerala Rudhali, Bihu, Bhogali Garu, Bhawana in Assam Bakrial and Karbari in Tamilnadu Gangaur, Teej in Rajasthan Karchi, Kher Garia in Tripura Ghantamardala, Bommalai, Tholu in Andhra Pradesh Vanian, Gidda, Watti in Punjab.
