Boarding Home

I live and go school in the Kalrayan Hills in Tamil Nadu, India. Owned and operated by the Arcot Lutheran Church — an Indian, Dalit-led church body in the state of Tamil Nadu — the boarding homes here serve very poor, rural, mostly indigenous students. Many families in these hills rely on subsistence farming, or have to travel far away from home to find low-wage labor.

Favorite Activity

My favorite activity is dancing. Many boarding homes offer classes in both contemporary and traditional Indian & Tamil dance styles.

Caste

I am an indigenous person in India. Also called "Adivasi", "Scheduled Tribe", or "Tribal" in India, indigenous people were some of the earliest inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent, and have been historically marginalized and oppressed.
