Adi Karnataka people are a scheduled caste that originated from Karnataka. They are also known as Balagai. They speak the Kannada and Tamil languages.

Where are they located?
The Adi Karnatakas live in Mysore in Karnataka and the Nilgiri region of Tamil Nadu state.

What are their lives like?
They have sub groups, and they do not marry outside their group.

Adi Karnataka are laborers, some are land owners working in agriculture, carpentry, and for the government. They are educated, but their literacy level is not high. Women do the housework and do some paid work to help to support their families.

What are their beliefs?
Adi Karnataka people are Hindu by religion and worship many gods. There are many forms of Hinduism each with their own deities and beliefs.

Nearly all Adi Karnataka people are Hindus, and their culture is locked into Hindu ways. Someone needs to show them how to make Jesus Christ central in their lives.

They need open hearts to hear God's answers to their spiritual problems.

Bible resources exist in Hindi, but Adi Karnataka people remain unreached.
