Introduction / History
The Dhurwa are a scheduled tribe who live in Madhya Pradesh. They speak Parji which is a Dravidian language. They are not vegetarians but do not eat beef and eat rice as a cereal.

The Dhurwa work in agriculture and with produce from the forest and they do not now do much of their traditional basket work because of not having the raw materials. The women help them with the work. Men shave their heads. They have a traditional council to look after them.

The Dhurwa look on education favorably but do like to use modern medicines and family planning.
