Fairs & Festivals

Sarhul is the most important festival of all the tribes in Jharkhand. Though, the way they celebrate the festival is slightly different from one to another. Sarhul, which also means Sal tree blossom, makes the tribal communities worship the tree of Sal to seek the blessings of their spirits. The festival is marked by extensive dance and music programs and unrestricted drinking of Hanria (a local brew made of rice).

Mukka Sendra is another festival that is celebrated just once every twelve years, by Oraon women. During this festival, women of the tribe wear all the male clothes and gears, and explore the entire region in order to hunt for animals. The hunting process continues for the entire day and they can kill any animal whether it is a pet or wild one.
