Viswakarma Thattan of India

Introduction / History
The Thattan are jewelers by tradition who live in Kerala. They are Hindus by religion. They are not vegetarians. Malayalam is the language they speak, read and write in.

The Thattan have cousin marriages. There are birth and marriage ceremonies. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. The dead are buried or cremated. On the death of the father the property is shared the same between the sons and daughters with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home.

Some of them have jewelers shops, some own land. Some do office work among those who are educated which suggests that the gospel may need to be given in oral form too. Education is looked on favorably though with them. They use modern and traditional medicines and use family planning.

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