dc.description.abstractIndigenous knowledge is the basis for local level decision-making in agriculture, healthcare, food preparation, education, natural resource management, and a host of other activities in rural communities. Forest resource conservation is a global issue. Arunachal Pradesh inhabits about 26 major tribes and number of sub tribes. Forest is their main source of economy and livelihood. Tribes have evolved Indigenous knowledge system (IKS) that is vital in conservation of forest resources. An attempt has been made to analyze the role of IKS, beliefs and sacred groves of the Aka tribes in conservation of forest resources. The indigenous knowledge systems of conservation of plants, animals, sacred groves, etc. have been discussed. Primary data has been generated by conducting survey in 37 villages inhabited by Aka tribe.en_US
