NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Social Science History Chapter 5 - Pastoralists in the Modern world


The chapter introduces the students to the topic of “Pastoralists.” The area covered by Nomadic Pastoralists and the reasons for their migration has been mentioned briefly. Not all Pastoralists reside in Mountains, and a few also live in Plateaus, plains, and deserts of India. Most of the land which was occupied by Pastoralists was grazed and taken care of by them.

The chapter further states the different activities performed by them. Due to the restrictions imposed that were by the Colonial rule of the government, the number of pastoralists began diminishing over time. Likewise, in Africa, due to the rise of Colonial Rule, the Pastoralists had to face the issue. In the end, the chapter describes a few groups of pastoralists that still hold lands and graves upon.

  • In the beginning, the chapter explains the work that “Nomadic pastoralists” perform and the reason for their way of living.
  • Pastoralists move from one place to another, grazing the land and the animals around it.
  • Various pictures have been used to describe the kinds of places they reside in and their lifestyle.
  • Many pastoralists were Shepherds, Blanket-weavers, and farmers as well.
  • The chapter highlights the areas where pastoralists' population was spread across India and the factors that led to their shift in places.
  • The chapter further states the impact of Colonial Rule on Pastoralists, and the restrictions put on them from entering the prohibited lands.
  • The same in Africa's case, where the lands were either divided or marked as the border between two countries or else were under national parks.
  • The chapter ends with a concluding paragraph depicting the few pastoralists left in Africa who still practice grazing.
