Hurkiya of India

Introduction / History
The Hurkiya are a scheduled caste in north India. In Uttarakhand they are Hindus while in Uttar Pradesh they are Muslims.

The Hurkiya in Uttarakhand are endogamous, that is, they prefer to marry within their group or clan. Their name comes from hurka which is a hand drum. They speak Kumaoni and Hindi. They sell such things as combs, mirrors and toys. Some of them are tailors. A caste association looks after them and judges in disputes. They follow Hinduism and Shamanism.

The Hurkiya of Uttar Pradesh are mostly laborers. They are Sunni Muslims and have folk beliefs too.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the caste association leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Hurkiya to Him too.
* Pray that gospel materials will lead them to salvation.
