Introduction / History

The Muria are a group of the Gond and are a scheduled caste. They live in the Bastar region of Madhya Pradesh. They are not vegetarians and eat rice. Clan names are used by them as surnames. They have cross-cousin marriages and the dead are buried.

The Muria are cultivators and they also sell products that come from the forest. They have a traditional village council to look after them. Hinduism is their religion. They are skilled at basket making. They use traditional medicines rather than using modern medicines.

The Muria have a comb that represents love and friendship.
