Johiya (also known as Joia, Joiya, Joyia, Joya, Joyea, Joeia and Joeya, Joriya claims to be a Chandravanshi Rajput clan in Northern India and Pakistan. The Jats also have a clan named Johiya.

Origin[edit]

The Johiya Rajputs may be modern-day descendants of the ancient Yaudheya warrior tribe that ruled in some areas of northern India until the period of the Gupta empire. This theory - which was proposed by Alexander Cunningham - is not certain and it has also been mooted that they may be connected to another ancient tribe, being the Audumbaras.[1][2]
