Ooty is really a gift of nature with long history revolving around its tribal life. When the British officers invented this region, it was mostly dominated by tribes like the Todas, Kotas, Kurumbas, Irulas and Kattunayakan’s. The various tribes of the region are still dispersed in the jungles of Ooty. It is impossible to visit these places in order to get introduced to different tribes of the region. Instead by visiting the Government Museum in Ooty you will know more about these tribes and their cultures.
