Birhor tribal couple returning from an unsuccessful hunt at Itchak resettlement camp for formerly nomadic tribes. Graffiti on the wall behind them depicts coal trucks passing by on the busy road their camp is situated next to. Birhor are traditional hunters and gatherers and do not practice pastoral cultivation like other adivasi tribes. Lacking title deeds for land on which they have farmed and hunted for millennia, the rural adivasi communities are being displaced to make way for new industrial developments planned to capitalise on the land's mineral wealth.
