The present study is focusing on historiography as an instrument for the generation of knowledge. Because tribal rebellion has been historiographed from those perspectives which are not its true representation. The danger with this representation is that the exact nature, demand and significance of these tribal rebellions are lost and they are appropriated by other historiographies for their own interests. The study also points out the significance of genuine implementation of the PESA lies at the very heart of empowering the diverse tribal communities, which is possible only if PESA is contextualized in the light of true historical legacy of all the tribal rebellions ever occurred in modern India. PESA should not be concerned only with the setting up of a uniform institutional apparatus at the local level in the Scheduled Areas rather far more important is the need of empowering the tribal communities in becoming the ultimate arbitrator of the natural resources to which is attached their biological and cultural existence.
