Introduction / History

The Godoberi are native to Dagestan. They settled this area eight or nine centuries before Christ. From ancient animistic religious traditions, between the 10th-14th Centuries the Godoberi converted to Islam. Their Islamic practices continue strongly influenced by animistic elements. They speak their own language. Their primary occupation is farming, horticulture and cattle production. They also tend vinyards and beehives. They have a patriarichal society and large families. The Godaberi have very rich folklore and many legends about their national heroes and about how their villages were created.
