Maghaiya of India

Introduction / History
The Maghaiya Kumbar live in Orissa, Bihar and West Bengal. They speak, read and write in Oriya and Bengali. They are non-vegetarians who eat rice as a cereal.

The Maghaiya Kumbar have clans who look after marriages. They have birth and marriage rituals. Widowers and the divorced can marry again. The dead are cremated. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Maghaiya Kumbar work in agriculture and in selling pottery. Most of them are landless. They are Hindus and follow a local religion. They have a traditional council to look after them. They are not well educated so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the traditional councils will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
