Kuravan (Hindu traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Kuravan of India are a scheduled caste. Kuravan means palmistry. Except for the ones in Kerala, the literacy level is low, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

In Kerala the Kuravan speak, read and write in Malayalam. They have cousin marriages. They work in cultivation, laboring and other work. Hinduism is their religion. Modern medicines and family planning are used by them. Boys and to a degree girls are educated.

In Tamil Nadu, Kuravan means hill man. They speak Tamil. They are not vegetarians and eat rice and millet as a cereal. Fortune telling is done by them. Men make baskets.

In Pondicherry the Kuravan are landless. They speak Tamil. Animal production and farming are their main occupations. They tattoo and paint, too.

Some of the Kuravan live in Karnataka.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God will give the Kuravan dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
