‘Be like Usain Bolt’: India’s Tribal Athletes | 101 East Documentary

Now he dreams of representing his community internationally on the track.

Descended from the African Bantu tribe, Siddi people have lived in India for centuries but have long been discriminated against as outsiders. Now, a sporting initiative is helping tribal communities achieve athletic success and with it, recognition and acceptance.
