Cheruman (Muslim traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Pulayan Cheramar Christians live in Kerala and speak, read and write in Malayalam. They are not vegetarians. They eat rice as a cereal.

The Pulayan have cousin marriages. A dowry is used. Marriage is by mutual consent or by negotiation.

The bereaved can marry again but divorce is not allowed. The dead are buried. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

The Pulayan have a parish council which are a local group of churches, to look after them. They work mainly in agriculture. They believe in education for boys and girls and use traditional and modern medicines.

Prayer Points
* Pray that those who are nominal Christians become born again.
* Pray that gospel materials lead them to salvation.
