Abstract: Anthropology has played a significant political role in India, both deliberate and unintentional. From the earliest ethnological writings of British administrators and European missionaries to the work of the Anthropological Survey of India and the Tribal Research Institutes, anthropological understandings of the 'peoples of India' have shaped or influenced, in diverse ways, governing practices of the state, the formation of cultural identities, and political and social movements.
