Introduction / History

The Barwala people belong to a Dalit class in the northern part of India. They live in India's far northern state of Jammu and Kashmir.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most of them live in rural areas. Traditionally they have worked as village watchmen and messengers, overseeing the work of coolies, bearing torches and carrying palanquins at weddings. Today most of them are engaged in agriculture or as unskilled laborers. As far as their families are concerned the Barwalas live mainly in nuclear households. The oldest son becomes the head of the household. They allow for divorce and remarriage.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Most if not all of the Barwala are Hindu.
