Dalit Art Forms and Tourism Promotion: Case Study of Theyyam Dance

  • Jacob John

Abstract

Promotion of Dalit art forms  under  tourism can contribute to social and economic empowerment of marginalised communities in India. Modern tourism is a strong instrument to reduce the existing power inequalities and discriminations. Theyyam dances  in Kerala are now effective tools and weapons to resist and fight back against an unjust social system. Promotion of Dalit art forms  under  tourism can contribute to social and economic empowerment of these marginalised communities.
