The SOLIGA • a Dying Tribe • Indigenous People
The Soliga, one of India’s scheduled tribes, live in India’s Western Ghats. They have deep knowledge of the wild plants in the region, but this knowledge is slowly dying out. This film highlights a few of their special wild plants and shows the preparation of a meal using Kaddisoppu.
Two recipes using the leaf, Kaddisoppu, can be found here: http://www.downtoearth.org.in/content/leafy-option
