South Asian Peoples
The Bhil are one of the largest indigenous tribes of India. They are found throughout western India but their largest concentrations are in southern Rajasthan, western Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and northern Maharashtra. The Bhil language family includes nineteen languages, most spoken only by smaller sub-groups of Bhil. A majority of Bhil speak Hindi and practice Hinduism, though elements of their tribal religion still retain influence.
