There are three scheduled tribes in Attappadi in Palakkad district of Kerala: Irulas, Mudugars and Kurumbas. The Mudugars have the highest rate of literacy and they have their own unique dialect. The word ‘Mudugar’ might have been derived from their age old practice of carrying their babies on their backs (‘muthuku’).
