Tribal communities have an inventive streak, characterised by original thought and resourcefulness. A case in point is the lantana craft. A shrub called the 'lantana Americana' hitherto regarded as a pestilence to forest and agricultural land was a 'waste' material that got transformed into a 'wealth', as the tribals ingeniously used it to craft furniture and innovative souvenirs. Scrap wood, branches and roots are carved in indigenous designs, borrowed from ancient traditions.

Tribal art forms like Karma, Dadariya, Shaila are performed at the site by trained groups of artists. The groups have been performing their art at different popular tourist sites.
