Gatti of India

Introduction / History
The Gatti of India are a small caste of cultivators living mainly near Kumbla and Someswara in South Canara. They are also called Poladava and Holadava, meaning "men of the field." They follow the law of inheritance in the female line and have exogamous septs. This means that the group is divided into one or more segments and marriage only takes place between the segments, never within them. On the day of the final death ceremony they build car-like structures if the deceased was an important local person.

The Gattis and Bants dine with each other but do not intermarry. The leader of the Gattis is called Gunkara. The god of the Someswara temple is the caste deity and every family pays a yearly fee of four annas (a currency unit formerly used in India, equal to 1/16 rupee) or else they are excommunicated.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Gatti leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Salvation too.
* Pray that gospel materials will bring the Gatti to Jesus Christ.
