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.
My favorite activity is playing throwball. From Wikipedia: Throwball is a non-contact ball sport played across a net between two teams of nine players on a rectangular court. It is popular in Asia, especially on the Indian subcontinent, and was first played in India as a women's sport in Chennai during the 1940s.
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.
