Koya tribe UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • In Godavari valley, the Koya tribe faces a cultural crisis as raids by the Special Enforcement Bureau threaten their cherished tradition of Mahua liquor consumption. 

  • Scores of Koya women are increasingly abandoning their ancestral practice of collecting and brewing Mahua flowers, fearing the repercussions of enforcement actions

Koya tribe

  • Koya are one of the few multi-racial and multi-lingual tribal communities in India.

  • They live in the forests, plains, and valleys on both sides of the Godavari River, which lies in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana.

  • Many also live in the states of Chhattisgarh and Orissa.

  • Most Koya speak either Gondi or Telugu, in addition to Koyi.

  • Koyi is closely related to Gondi and has been strongly influenced by Telugu.

  • They erect menhirs in memory of the dead.

  • The Koyas adopted Bison horns to discover their two cultural forms: 

    • the Kommu Koya dance, during which two Bison horns are adorned on the head as part of the attire, and 

    • the Permakore flute, which is made of a single horn
