AN INSIGHT INTO BADUGA CLANS & TOTEMS

Clan deity
The Badugu Gowda clan call their clan deity by the name “Hiriyodayya”. The Badugu Haruva clan ‎call the deity by the name “Mahalingaiyya”. Wodeyaru call by the name “Jedayalinga” or “Jedayasomi”, Thoreyaru address by the name “Ketharayya” and Adhikari Clan address by the name “Kariyabettaraya. The Badaga Community is an agglomeration of various Jatis and Clans which trace their ancestry to ‎varied family trees but speaking the same language. Although we may look like a homogenous community to an outsider, factually we are not.
The Badaga community, like several communities of India is formed of different Clans(KOLA) affiliated to different Totems.

The various clans and their totems are as follows:
1. Forefathers of Solur Group – NAGA (COBRA)
2. Forefathers of Thoodagur Group – ANEY (ELEPHANT)
3. Forefathers of Doddur Group – MARI (GODDESS MARI)
4. Forefathers of Sinnakunnur – Kethi – Kundha Group – KASTURI (MUSK DEER)
5. Forefathers of Hebbanadu – Halhattane – Thangadu Group – MANIKKA (CARBUNCLE STONE)
Forefathers of Meekeri – Ithalar – Balakola Group – MANIKKA (CARBUNCLE STONE)
Forefathers of Horanally – Porthy Group – MANIKKA (CARBUNCLE STONE)
Forefathers of Bembatti – Belida Group – MANIKKA (CARBUNCLE STONE)
Forefathers of Kasoley-Mandhanai Group – MANIKKA (CARBUNCLE STONE)
Forefathers of Jakkanarai Group – MANIKKA (CARBUNCLE STONE)
Forefathers of Kateri Ajjur Group – MANIKKA (CARBUNCLE STONE)
6. Forefathers of Adhikari Group – KOVERU (WHITE HORSE)

Each clan is exogamous, i.e., man belonging to one clan cannot marry the girls of the same clans as they are the descendants from the same ancestors. Men of one clan can marry girls of different clans affiliated to different totem.
