Talom Rukbo

Talom Rukbo was the father of Donyi-Polo, a revivalist religious movement based in Arunachal Pradesh which attempts to reconstruct Tani (Adi) animist spirituality.

He has criticized Christian missionaries for fraudulent conversion practices in the Northeast of India.[1]

Because of his contribution to the Adivasi way of life, Rukbo has been named one of the inspirations for the Vanavasi Kalyan Ashram project run by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.[2]

    The church?Christian missionaries ? quickly capitalized on the innocence of our forefathers. They fraudulently convinced our people that we were barbarians and converted some into Christianity. ? They declared that the converted persons must discard (1) the `animist` practices, (2) our festivals and that our Gods and Goddesses were Saitan (evil spirits? Satan).
