Halleer of India

Introduction / History
Almost all of the 11,000 members of the Halleer community live in rural parts of Maharashtra and Karnataka. They were once hunters and gatherers, but now most of them are musicians who play at social functions like weddings. They are also engaged with many forms of farm work. During lean times they do basket weaving and honey gathering. In two separate Hindu temples in Maharashtra some of their women have become Devadasis, or Hindu temple prostitutes.

What are their beliefs?
This Hindu community has not been exposed to the gospel. They do not have their own language. Instead they use the main language of whatever state they live in; Marathi in Maharashtra, and Kannada in Karnataka. Both languages have many Christian materials including New Testaments and the JESUS Film.

Prayer Points
Pray for evangelistic materials to find their way into every Halleer home.
