Dubla Tribe




Dubla is a tribal community group settled along the coast of western central India. They are primarily seen in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Rajasthan. The members speak Dubla, a Bhil language that belongs to the Indo-Aryan linguistic family.

Dublas are divided into the twenty sub-groups. Among them, the Talavias have the highest social rank.

The community members work as sharecroppers, servants and casual laborers. A Dubla village lies along small rivers near other Dubla villages. They build one-roomed, mud-brick houses with extremely low thatch roofs.

Dublas belong to the Hindu caste and have a bhagat (priest and medicine man) for spiritual guidance.
