What We Do
Community Cultural Centre
Pyara Kerketta Foundation has taken the question of culture and languages very seriously and has started Telanga Kharia Languages and Culture Centre for the conservation, enrichment and development of indigenous languages and culture.
Documenting Adivasi Wisdom and Knowledge
The protection of cultural heritage and the question of social re-organization is the basic problem of the indigenous people of Jharkhand. So, PKF deeply engage in documentation of languages, art, knowledge and all forms of Adivasi wisdom.
PKF promotes community learning tradition. To educate we organised Literary Conferences, Performances and cultural workshops for collective knowledge learning and sharing.
Publishing Books, Magazines and Visuals
The dissemination of Adivasi languages and knowledge PKF publishing newspapers, periodicals, magazines, books, and making documentaries and movies.
Western wisdom and society are based on the notion of the primacy of the individual. Indigenous Wisdom is profoundly different: in the indigenous approach to reality each person is first and foremost a part of the tribe, and the tribe is an aspect of the natural world.
Being the victim of internal colonialism, the Adivasii languages are going through a period of identity crisis. In fact the question of cultural identity and existence of indigenous society is deeply interlinked with the enrichment of indigenous languages.
Indigenous literature, if you want to use that label for convenience’s sake, holds many if not all of the beliefs, philosophies, worldviews of Indigenous people; it holds a history. So that Aboriginal literature really is the heart of Aboriginal being."
