Over the decade under the era of Neo-liberalism, the indigenous people have been subjected to discriminate and deprive from their natural resources which they are using both as materially and spiritually. Neo-liberalism has brought liberalization, privatization and globalisation mode of development, as result it substitute their livelihood from agriculture to industrialisation. For the national objective of development, the government has given much impotence of structural development as the foreign investor are become grid for investment in India. This LPG mode of development process has obliged to work for the elite section of society, as result it improvised the condition of indigenous people by depriving them from their livelihood. It has changed the relationship between nation-state and Indigenous people, has brought anti-globalisation movement and a left ideology against this change. This article is devoted to understand how the globalisation has impacted on the Indigenous people. Again, tried to explore how the anti-globalisation movement are grown as a resistance of globalisation and tried to revitalise their traditional based culture. At last, tried to understand about the recognition of international and national laws for the development of indigenous people.
