            Bastar is the place of culture mosaic for the presence of various ethnic / tribal groups with their diverse cultural attributes. Each tribal group is territorially demarcated in their habitation over the district and their sustenance patterns are roaming the habitation area. Bhatra or Bhattara—a Scheduled tribe of Chhattisgarh is confined in the north-eastern part, and adjacent to Odisha, of the undivided Bastar district.

                         Bastar has experienced a number of historical waves, which have  resulted  into diverse cultural mosaic  in this area. Under this backdrop Bhatra or Bhattara  who also wear sometime a sacred thread since the period of Raja who assigned them a distinct role during jogi bithai ritual of Dusehra festival, which is a symbol  of cultural syncretism at Bastar.
