West Indian Tribes, inhabiting the far-off regions within the grim Western mountains
, amalgamate brilliance and aboriginal customs altogether; yet, each tribe distinguishes themselves in concentrating matters. Western India
comprises the states
that houses a sufficient section of Indian tribes
, enough to assign the states with tribal beauty. The tribal life in these West Indian states varies in their lifestyle. These tribal people
are still dependent on hunting
for their livelihood. All these tribal people have their own culture
, tradition, language
and lifestyle. Among the tribes of western India, the craft
ing is revered, with tattoos having a close relation to secular and religious subjects of devotion.
Tribes of Rajasthan
The tribes of Rajasthan have been involved with rest of the Rajasthani population since ancient times
, with their unique customs
and culture spreading each other day. Redefining the definition of unity in diversity, tribes of Rajasthan have paved out a way to jot down each other's exclusivity and apply it in everyday life. The end product that comes out is simply brilliant, be it matters of cuisine
, cultural life or mode of agriculture. The touch of modernisation has wholly caught up with the tribes of this West Indian bunch, paving way for novel ways of occupation and popularity.
Tribes of Gujarat
The tribes of Gujarat have been traced in their ancient lineage with the times of Mahabharata
. Going great guns since those ancient times, tribes of Gujarat today have divided themselves into several places of dwelling by the sea, amidst the Western Ghats
and the plains. Known to be staunch believers in animism, they too have faith in animalistic structures and occult practices. Agriculture and harvesting seem to be Gujarat tribes' basic occupations since olden times.
Tribes of Maharashtra
The tribes of Maharashtra are primarily classified in the groups of nomadic tribes and scheduled tribes
. West Indian tribes are truly elevated to escalading heights when Maharashtrian aboriginal
men and women are concerned. Sharing the common tribal interests in religious customs, they primarily reside in the interiors of the Aravalli
. Believing ardently in the institution of marriage
tribes of Maharashtra divide their daily living by roaming from place to place.
Tribes of Goa
The tribes of Goa have wholly descended from the Dravidians
, as differing from the Aryans
. They primarily reside in the Konkan coast, with customary tribal customs like religious beliefs, cultural modes of entertainment
, or day-to-day governing. Christianity
being the primary faith, in the present times Goan tribes have been heavily impressed upon by commercialisation.
