Gadchiroli (38.75%), Chandrapur (19.70%) and Yavatmal (21.47%) districts have a larger percentage of tribal population as compared to other districts. In these districts, Gonds, Pardhans and Kolam are major tribes followed by Korku and others. Gonds, who are numerically predominant, are a part of Gond tribe accounting for one of the major tribal groups in India followed by Mundas. Traditional knowledge of handicrafts among Gonds in general and among Gonds of Chandrapur and Gadchiroli districts in particular, attracts attention. An attempt has been made to present the traditional knowledge and skills, specially related to woodcraft and bamboocraft of Gond tribes of Vidarbha region.
