‘Dongr’ means ‘field on mountains’. As per the tradition of the tribes, the unmarried Dongria girls sit at ‘Dongr’ embroidering beautiful geometric patterns on plain handwoven shawls, for their would be husbands. The sheer art of love and dedication takes over a month for a single shawl. Triangles represent Niyamgiri Hills- the home of the primitive tribal group of Dongria Kondhs.
The Dangaria Kandha or Dongria Kondh people are members of the Kondhs. They are located in the Niyamgiri hills in the state of Odisha in India.They sustain themselves from the resources of the Niyamgiri forests, practising horticulture and shifting cultivation.They have been at the centre of a dispute over mining rights in the area.
