Verrier Elwin (29 August 1902 – 22 February 1964) was an English-born Indian self-trained anthropologist, ethnologist and tribal activist, who began his career in India as a Christian missionary. He was a controversial figure who first abandoned the clergy, to work with Mohandas Gandhi and the Indian National Congress, then converted to Hinduism in 1935 after staying in a Gandhian ashram, and split with the nationalists over what he felt was an overhasty process of transformation and assimilation for the tribals. Elwin is best known for his early work with the Baigas and Gonds of central India, and he married a member of one of the communities he studied there, though he also worked on the tribals of several North East Indian states especially North-East Frontier Agency (NEFA) and settled

  • Verrier Elwin (Douvres, 2 août 1902 -1964) est un ethnologue, anthropologue autodidacte et militant tribal, qui commença sa carrière en Inde, comme missionnaire. Cet homme controversé a d'abord abandonné le clergé pour travailler avec Mohandas Gandhi et le Congrès national indien, puis s'est plus tard séparé des nationalistes à cause de ce qu'il considère comme un processus trop rapide de transformation et d'assimilation des populations tribales. Elwin est surtout connu pour son travail sur les Baiga, les Gond et les Saura de l'Inde centrale, et il a épousé deux femmes Gond.
