The Gowari are a tribal people in India. The peoples of this community used to take their cattle into the forest for grazing
They are presumed to be of low value and hence have been kept down in the social caste hierarchy. The government of India categorized this community as a Scheduled Tribe by the name of Gond Gowari.
They are mainly engaged in cow-herding and in agrarian activity. They work mainly as laborers for higher caste landlords like Kohali, Kunbi and Gond.
This community is generally spread over the central parts of India.The districts of Vidharbha in Maharashtra, Adilabad Guntur and Godawari districts in Andhra Pradesh, Balaghat Sieoni districts in Madhya Pradesh and Raipur and Rajnandgaon districts in Chhattisagarh are the major locations of this tribe.
They used to worship God in nature but today most are Hindu. They have strong beliefs in Buradeo (Mahadeo). The peoples of this community are very honest and do not drink milk as it is sin and stigma for their community.
They are very poor people and lacking in education.The government deprived them of social advantages, denying them scheduled tribe status.
