Ruby Hembrom is the founder and director of adivaani (first voices), an archiving and publishing outfit of and by Adivasis started in 2012. A trained instructional designer, editor and book designer, Hembrom’s documentation initiative grew out of a need to claim Adivasi stake in historical and contemporary social, cultural and literary spaces and as peoples. She is the author of adivaani’s Santal Creation Stories for children and the prize-winning illustrated book ‘Disaibon Hul’ on the Santal Rebellion of 1855–57. Delegate | 2019
