Introduction / History

The Valmiki live in Karnataka. They speak, read and write in Kannada. Hinduism is their religion. They are not vegetarians and eat wheat and rice.

The Valmiki are monogamous. They have cousin marriages. There are birth and marriage rituals. Divorce is allowed on matters such as adultery and bad treatment. Divorcees and the bereaved can marry again. The dead are buried. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Valmiki work mainly as agricultural laborers. They have an Association that looks after them. Boys are more educated than girls. They use modern medicine to a degree and use family planning.
