Introduction / History

The Kunbu Khaire live in Maharashtra. They speak Marathi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and eat jowar and rice as cereals.

The Kunbu Khaire are monogamous. Cousin marriages take place and a dowry is paid. Marriage rituals take place. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property. The dead are usually cremated. Hinduism is their religion.

Most of them own land and work in agriculture. There are more landless now than before and this has meant some of them going into other work. They believe in education, modern medicines and family planning.
