Abstract: The Oraons of Chattisgarh have a tradition of totemism; name their clans after plants, animals, and other objects of their daily needs or environment. They attach some special significance like faith, taboos or other practices to emphasize the importance of these things in their survival and the need for their conservation. The folk of those clans do not harm these species, and protect them from any damage. Examples of names of some animals, plants, and other objects common among the Oraons of Chattisgarh are given. Such traditions helping in conservation of biodiversity, and natural resources have been discussed.
