Krishnanvak of India

Introduction / History
The Krishnavaka live in Tamil Nadu. They live in Kerala too. There are two sub groups among them, the Makkavali who speak, read and write in Tamil and the Marumakkavali who do so in Malayalam.

The Krishnavaka have cross cousin marriages. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. On the death of the father, the property goes to the sons among the Makkavali and more to the daughters among the Marumakkavali. The oldest son becomes in charge of the home. There are birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated.

The Krishnavaka work in cultivation and animal husbandry. Most of them are landowners. Hinduism is their religion. They have a council to look after them. They have their children educated and use modern and traditional medicines and family planning. They are not vegetarians and eat rice.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel materials will lead them to salvation.
