Yerukula is a Dravidian language spoken by about 70,000 people in parts of Andhra Pradesh in India. The language is also known as Kurru basha or Kulavatha and is closely related to Ravula and Irula, and more distantly related to Tamil. The Yerukula people call themselves Kurru: the name Yerukula comes from their women's traditional profession of fortune telling (eruka cheputa).
