Introduction / History

The Gautam live in Uttar Pradesh. They speak Bhojpuri and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. Hinduism is their religion. They are not vegetarians and eat wheat and rice as cereals.

The Gautam have marriages by discussion. They are monogamous. There are birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated. Divorcees cannot remarry but the bereaved can marry again. On the death of the father, the sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Gautam are landowners and work in cultivation. Some are self employed. The women help with financial matters. They believe in education and use modern medicines.
