Justice at the Grassroots: A Tribute to Antonio Francisco Fernandes, Leader of Goa’s Tribal Communities. By Cyril Aleixo Fernandes.

The Gavddas (also known as the Kunbis) were the first known settlers in this Land of the Golden Harvest which today goes by the name of Goa. Later settlers took advantage of this peaceful community, usurped their land and refashioned their deities. Today, centuries later, they find themselves on the fringe of Goa’s development, largely excluded from policy-making, and bearing the ill effects of unplanned and unwanted ‘development’.
