Bondos are the most primitive tribes of Odisha (Orissa) living in the Bondo hills. They speak Remo,a dialect which has an affinity with the language of the Mundas of Austro-Asiatic descent. The “ringa”, a 2 ft wide and long fabric, woven from the “kerang” plant, and tied to their waist is their traditional costume. Heavy brass and aluminium collar necklaces and beads are vital accessories used by the Bonda women.
The Didayis share the same territory as the Bondos, but speak another variant of the Munda language. The Didayi women wear a “kisalu” and are equally fond of ornaments made from silver, gold, aluminium and some alloys.
