Koli Patelia of India

Introduction / History
The Koli speak Gujarati and Hindi and read and write in Gujarati. Their literacy level is moderate so the gospel may need to be given in oral form too. They are not vegetarians and they eat rice. Hinduism is their religion.

In Gujarat they have caste councils to look after them. There are birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property. Cultivation is their main work. They use Brahman priests for religious matters. Modern medicines and family planning are used by them.

In Dama and Diu the main occupation of the Koli is agriculture. They have gods who they associate with agriculture.

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