The Sauria Pahariyas live in the inaccessible hilly region and are confined
to Godda, Rajmahal and Pakur sub divisions. They do not posses any totemic
clans. The Mal Pahariyas, a Hinduized section of Pahariya tribe, employ
advanced methods of cultivation, invariably using plough and bullocks
to till the small tablelands of the plateau on which they raise quite
substantial dry crops.
