This is an attempt at bringing together a selection of the stories and paintings of the Warlis, and some of the writings about ‘them’. To the Warlis, a community of Adivasis (indigenous peoples), who live close to Bombay, these stories represent their ‘history’, their world-view. All the outsiders, the Portuguese, the Marathas, the British, the ‘native’ settlers… they all tried obliterating this history and wisdom. The work of the outsiders who wrote about ‘the Warli’ represents this process of creating new mythologies. By bringing together these disparate discourses, this video aspires to critique these mythologies… To read between the lines, as the stories themselves do
