January 13th, 2020

A controversial Indian mining company whose operations threaten lands, forests and sacred sites vital to thousands of tribal families has opened a residential school for tribal children in Odisha, India in an effort to "transform" them.

Adani, a $13billion corporation, is embroiled in controversy in India and Australia. In India its coal mines threaten the forests and livelihoods of thousands of Gond, Santhal and Munda tribespeople.

Its new school for tribal children is a partnership with KISS (the Kalinga Institute for Social Sciences), whose existing school for 27,000 tribal children in Odisha is the largest tribal residential school in the world. KISS boasts that the institution turns "tax consumers into tax payers, liabilities into assets."

Survival International has recently launched a campaign against these kinds of "Factory Schools," which practice systematic cultural erasure masquerading as education, and which teach tribal children to feel ashamed of who they are and where they come from.

In a statement to mark the opening of the new school, Dr. Priti Adani, wife of Adani's founder Gautam Adani, spoke of the need for "social transformation" of tribal children.

The Indian tribal rights activist Soni Sori says: "We resist this kind of education, whoever it comes from - Adani or anyone. They give their kind of education because they want our children to hate jungles. They want our children to hate their own culture. They want to create distance between children and parents."

Survival International's Dr. Jo Woodman said today: "The agenda behind this school is clear: Adani wants tribal lands, and tribal resistance is a major thorn in their sides. This school is a brazen and shameless attempt to ‘reprogram' a generation of tribal children to see mining as ‘good' and their spiritual and cultural connections to their land as ‘bad' or ‘backwards.' For KISS to partner so closely with a company so notorious on issues of indigenous rights in both India and Australia shows their true colors."

Survival International, founded in 1969 after an article by Norman Lewis in the UK's Sunday Times highlighted the massacres, land thefts and genocide taking place in Brazilian Amazonia, is the only international organization supporting tribal peoples worldwide.
