Schedule Castes (ST) and Schedule Tribes (ST) form about seventy percent and twelve percent of the state population respectively. The population of the tribes in Rajasthan is nearly a double of the national average, with original inhabitants Bhils and the Meenas forming the largest group. Lesser known tribes like Sahariyas, Damariyas, Garasias, Lohars still form an important groups.

The Bhils are largely concentrated in the area around Chittorgarh, Udaipur and Dungarpur in the south corner of the state constituting a formidable 39 percent of the state's tribal population. Regarded as warriors with fine inherent guerilla tactics, their archery skills find mention in the Hindu epics of Mahabharata and the Ramayana. With improved communication and rapid growth in the economy, the Bhil's of living is slowly changing from their original hunting and gathering existence to one near the mainstream.
