The Theyyam or Theyyattam is a popular ritual dance of northern Kerala, India, particularly presented in the Kolathunadu (of the present Kannur and Kasargod districts). As a living cult with several thousand year old traditions, ritual and custom, it embraces almost all castes and classes of Hindu religion in this region. The term Theyyam is a corrupt form of daivam or God. People of these districts consider Theyyam as a God and they seek blessings from Theyyam.
