Adivasis belong to the Hindu fold, but their rituals and customs are a little different from that of the usually practised ones in the town area. They follow primitive forms of worship – ancestral worship and offerings to please the spirits of ancestors are still prevalent among Adivasis. Apart from the Hindu Gods of various temples, Adivasis mainly worship two deities called Thampuratty and Vettakkorumakan. The presence of centuries old temples here suggest that there were efforts made to bring Adivasis to the Hindu fold. Adivasis worship and participate in the festivals of the temples like Thirunelli and Valliyoorkavu in Wayanad district and it shows the connection between aboriginal mind and the Hindu system of belief.
