Ramoshi in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The term Ramoshi has been derived from Ram, the legendary hero of the Ramayana, and the Marathi word Ushi meaning Pillon. They believe that they were the caretakers and protectors of Ram's Ushi and hence the name Ramoshi was derived.

During the British regime, the Ramoshi were included in the criminal tribe category in Bombay presidency as were other tribes. This was due to the fact that the Ramoshi were involved in uprisings against the British Raj. Those tribes who were originally categorized as "Criminal Tribes" in 1871 were later defined as "Denotified Tribes." There is ongoing pressure for India to drop the designation of "Denotified Tribes."

They live primarily in the Maharashtra districts and the northwest districts of Karnataka.
