  • There were several Gond kingdoms in Central India such as that of Garha Mandla, or Chanda. 
  • Many of the so-called Rajput kingdoms of central and western India actually emerged through a process of stratification among adivasi communities themselves. 
  • Adivasis often exercised dominance over the plains people through their capacity to raid them, and through their services as local militias. 
  • They also occupied a special trade niche, trading forest produce, salt and elephants
