Increasingly, education initiatives aimed at indigenous peoples are being funded by the very extractive industries that are devastating Adivasi, indigenous or tribal lands. Since education is often a political issue, politicians and political parties identify themselves with these corporate entities and "development projects" (including schools they fund), that are in process of expropriating these lands; which must also be understood as forest ecosystems, of outstanding biodiversity, which indigenous cultures have lived alongside and understood extremely deeply since recorded history. The relation between indigenous communities and these four levels, corporate, political, economic and educational, call out therefore for careful anthropological analysis.
