The Sora (alternative names and spellings include Saora, Saura, Savara and Sabara) are a Munda ethnic group from Southern Odisha in India.
Sauras are amongst the most ancient of tribes in India and have a fine mention in the Mythology like that of Ramayana and Mahabharata. Savari, Rama’s devotee in the Ramayana and Jara, the hunter who mortally wounded Krishna with an arrow, are thought to have been members of this tribe. Jara’s body is believed to have flowed into the sea near Puri as a wooden log and the idol Jagannath at Puri is believed to have been sculpted from it. Saura paintings are an integral part of the religious ceremonies of the Saura tribals and are found in the southern Odisha districts of Rayagada, Ganjam, Gajapati and Koraput.

Lately, weavers are engaged in weaving contemporary products like that of stoles which are of great delight amongst the younger generation.
