The Bheel (Tribal) Meenas belongs to the Meenas and are a tribal group found in the state of Rajasthan in India. In the ancient times Rajasthan was ruled by a dynasty of Meenas which had the emblem of Fish like the Pandyan kingdom (Paravar, Karava, Karaiyar) of the south.[1][2] The name Mina is derived from Meen [3][4][5] and the Minas claim descent from the Matsya Avatar(Meena Avatar[6])of God.[7][8][9][10][11] Matsya Avatar(Mina Avatar) takes place to save the pious and the first man, Manu. According to some traditions, the bhil Meenas are said to be descended from those Meenas and Rajputs who, in the wars between their own tribes or with Muslims, were compelled to quit their native home and seek refuge in the vastness of Rajputana, where they formed alliances with the aboriginal families and established tribe.Mainly they are mixed tribe of tribal minas and bheels.[12]
