Rajput Kanet of India

Introduction / History
The Thuana or Rajput Kanet live on the Bilaspur-Solan border of Himachal Pradesh in India. Their name comes from the village of Thohan. They speak Bilaspuri and read and write in Devanagari. Wheat and maize are their favorite cereals and they are not vegetarians.

The Thuan are named after the villages that their ancestors lived in. They are endogamous, meaning they prefer to marry within their group. Thakur is used as a surname. There are birth and marriage rituals. Divorce is allowed. Sons inherit the property on the death of the father. The dead are cremated.

The Thuana work in agriculture and breed cattle and sheep for example. Some work as laborers and some in horticulture.

Family planning is used by the Thuana. They are Hindus by religion. They have a low level of reading and writing which means the gospel will need to be given to them in oral form too.

Prayer Points
* Himachal Pradesh has a growing number converting to Christianity. Pray that some of them will give the gospel message to the Thuana leading them to Salvation.
* Pray that gospel recordings will bring them to Jesus Christ.
