Introduction / History

The Omanatya people have low status because of their tribal background. Their name comes from an ancient word that meant “minister of state affairs.”


Where Are they Located?

The Omanatya tribe lives in Odisha, a state in eastern India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Today the Omanatya people are simple farmers. They have two main folk dances that are unique to them.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Omanatya people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. However, their form of Hinduism is blended with their traditional tribal beliefs. Hinduism has a long standing track record of allowing for other beliefs to be incorporated into what we call Hinduism.


What Are Their Needs?

They need to find ways to get a better harvest for their crops and improved irrigation projects.
