Gantichore of India

Introduction / History
The 4,500 Gantichore people live mainly in India's southern state of Karnataka.

Once known for being thieves and pick-pockets, today they are usually agricultural day laborers and petty trade. A few have acquired their own farming land.

Traditionally they had child marriages, but now they marry as adults. Marriages are negotiated between families, and the groom's family has to pay the bride's family a bride price. Part of the marriage celebration involves a huge wedding feast. The wedding itself takes place either at the groom's home or at a public place.

They are open to modern conveniences like medical care, using mass media tools, improved drinking water, and electricity. They have large families.

What are their beliefs?
The Gantichore people cremate their dead, and dispose of the ashes in flowing water. They worship their ancestors every year. They are Hindus who focus much of their devotions on Tulaja Bhawani as a deity.

Prayer Points
Pray that they will give Jesus Christ their total devotion.
