The Galos constitute a tribe inhabiting the West Siang, southwestern side of East Siang, southeastern side of Upper Subansiri, as well as in some small pockets in Itanagar and Lower Dibang Valley, Changlang districts of Arunachal Pradesh, Northeast India. They were earlier known variously as Duba, Doba, Dobah Abor, Gallong Abor, Galong, etc.
The Galo community has been listed as a scheduled tribe with the term Galong since 1950. Now effort has been made to get the change of this term to Galo.

Famous quotes containing the word tribe:
“I want to celebrate these elms which have been spared by the plague, these survivors of a once flourishing tribe commemorated by all the Elm Streets in America. But to celebrate them is to be silent about the people who sit and sleep underneath them, the homeless poor who are hauled away by the city like trash, except it has no place to dump them. To speak of one thing is to suppress another.”
—Lisel Mueller (b. 1924)
