Interview of Dhanu Muduli by Pankaja Sethi, Machkund, Odisha, 2018

Dhanu Muduli,  head master at the State Government Machkund School, shares the social and cultural context of the Gadaba adivasis; how the Gadaba are a self-reliant community, who do everything from cultivating their own food to preparing the cloth they wear. However, with modernisation several changes have taken place within the community and several local traditions such as the weaving of the kerang, the bark cloth unique to this community, have languished.
