So in addition to national heroes, regional heroes and local folk and tribal heroes are alive in the collective memory of the people.   H, L, and R2 are the major Indian Y-chromosomal haplogroups that occur both in castes and in tribal populations and are rarely found outside the subcontinent. Haplogroup R1a, previously associated with the putative Indo-Aryan invasion, was found at its highest frequency in Punjab but also at a relatively high frequency (26%) in the Chenchu tribe.

Hg F*, H1 and J2 of the Soliga population chronicle the demographic history of the Indian tribal communities. • Frequency bias for F* in Indian tribes may be a result of genetic drift due isolation and low population growth. • Sharing of Y-STR haplotypes among tribal populations may be indicative of a common source population.
