6. Description Abstract A response to the previous piece, this essay complicates the historical push-pull dynamic between Adivasi groups and forces of Hinduization, which has gained fresh salience in today's Hindu nationalist India. As in many other places, in India, religion gives shape to Indigenous communities' claims to ancestral territories. To identify a local deity as a Hindu god is thus to threaten its worshippers' claim to cultural particularity—and ultimately, to Indigeneity itself.
