India is home to numerous tribes and the Bhil is one among them. Rana Pratap Singh (1540 to 1597 CE was one of the most famous kings of the Mewar dynasty, especially in the context of holding fort against the Mughal king, Akbar. He was aided in all his battles by Bhil warriors. Even today, the state emblem of Mewar shows Rana Pratap and a Bhil tribesman standing on either side of the Eklingji (the titular deity of Mewar) – a mark of respect for the Bhils’ loyalty and their indomitable spirit.
The Bhils have a strong connect to nature. Whether its agriculture or hunting, community members have a great knowledge of the forests and earth.
