There are various Dravidian speaking communities which are yet to be analyzed and documented. Koracha is one of such tribal communities spread across the state of Karnataka. They are an independent social and linguistic group, whose identity has been submerged with another tribe, namely Korava, in Karnataka. Koracha were and are a nomadic community who have travelled almost all South India including Maharashtra. In the recent past, they are settled in different places, however still migration may be noticed. They speak a unique Dravidian speech variety. There are around 50,000 Koracha speakers.
