"Indigenous Communities in Sri Lanka: the Veddahs" and "Traditional Communities in Sri Lanka: The Ahikuntaka"

In line with Dilmah's commitment to empowering marginalised communities and helping them preserve their cultural heritage, Dilmah Conservation engaged in numerous initiatives towards documenting the disappearing customs and traditional livelihoods of the indigenous Veddah community and the nomadic Ahikuntika community. Indigenous Communities in Sri Lanka: the Veddahs and Traditional Communities in Sri Lanka: The Ahikuntaka are a culmination of these efforts, chronicling the oral histories, heritage, lives and occupations of members of these communities. The Veddahs publication in particular delves into the rites and rituals of the Coastal Veddah community scattered in Sri Lanka's East; a group that has been largely overlooked and excluded as a consequence of the war.
