Banjara Cluster – Profile
  • The Banjara cluster is made up primarily of the Banjara caste (or community) of India. This community is not defined by language spoken, as is true of almost all communities of India. Rather, it is defined by common history and cultural / societal values. They have been a nomadic people, and have been likened to gypsies. However, at the present time the name Banjara may refer more to a trading community than to a nomadic community.
  • The Banjara are made up of several gotras, or clans. Members of the same gotra cannot marry, because they are considered brothers and sisters.
  • Their traditional caste (jati) council, the panchayat, consists of the elderly members of the village. The council settles cases related to inheritance disputes, payment of loans, divorce, settlement or payment of bride-price, etc.
  • Banjara deify ancestors, and saints are worshipped and revered. Their priests interface with ancestors and interpret omens, dreams, miraculous stories and magic. Their deities include Samkimata, Waghai Mai, Kalika, Asavari and Banjari Devi.
