Mundas are the Adivasis or the Tribals of the Jharkand. They spread over other states like Bihar, West Bengal, Chhatisgarh, and Orissa. Outside India Mundas can be found in Bangladesh. Today there are around two million Munda People.

The Mundas are highly respected tribals from the time of pre - independence of India. Birsa Munda , the Munda who turned into a Prophet and was a freedom fighter in the Indian Independence Struggle, is the most respected tribal. At a small age of 20 yrs, Birsa Munda was revered by his people as God.
