Introduction / History

The Bhil Gametia are a Scheduled Caste who live in Rajasthan. The name Gametia is related to head of a Bhil Village. They speak Mewari and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and eat maize and wheat.

The Bhil Gametia are endogamous, which means they prefer to marry within their community. They have pre-birth and marriage ceremonies. The dead are cremated but when priests die they are buried. They worship their deities mixed with Hinduism.

The Bhil Gametia work as cultivators and mostly as laborers. They have a headman for every village to look after them and judge in disagreements that occur.
