Dusherra is the main festival of the tribes. If one to get glimpse of tribal culture, one should come in the time of Dusherra ie. September-October. The Dusherra festival is different from that of North India and no Ravana is burnt here. However a beautiful (Chariot) Rath decorated with flowers is prepared and pulled by the tribes. All the tribes gather at the Danteshwari temple at Dantewada to worship Danteshwari Mata. The festival reflects colour of tribal culture, the rituals, the dances, the music, the women decorated with ornaments and traditional cloths all at one place. This is a must watch!!!
