Santhali - India’s first tribal language to get own Wikipedia edition


Santhali has become the first Indian tribal language to get a Wikipedia edition in its own script. Wikipedia contributors from India, Bangladesh and Nepal generated the content.
 
Santhali is written in Ol Chiki script and spoken by 6.4 million people, according to the 2001 census. In India alone and its speakers live mostly in Jharkhand, West Bengal, Odisha and Assam. It is also spoken in Bangladesh and Nepal.
 
The home page of the Santhali edition of Wikipedia carries an article on Raghunath Murmu, who created the Ol Chiki script.
