Description:
Kolhi () is a Sindhi tribe native to Sindh, Pakistan. There are Muslim and Hindu Kolhis. They are a branch of the larger Koli community found in west India.

History

Kolhis are descendants of the hunting and gathering population once subsisted on Thar's abundant fauna, fruit and wild products such as honey. They are now the poorest of the poor and least established and uneducated.

During General Ziaul Haq period one of the Kolhi was elected as Member of National Assembly.

Rooplo Kolhi is known in the history as warrior, who fought against the Britishers in Tharparkar District. Rooplo along with his companions was hanged by the Britishers near Nagarparkar.

Distribution

This tribe is mainly settled in Tharparkar District, near Karoonjhar Mountains range. Due to drought many of them have migrated to other parts of Sindh province and settled there. These areas included Mirpurkhas, Badin, Umerkot, Sanghar, Tando Allahyar and Hyderabad districts.

Due to poverty some of them were trapped in bonded labour, basically as hard working agriculturists.
