Introduction / History
The Devadiga of India live mainly in Tulu Nadu in South Western India in Karnataka and Kerala. They speak in Tulu and in Kannada.

The Devadiga are Hindus by religion. They are temple attendants and temple musicians. In Tula regions they have a form of spirit worship.

They have a system where the family of the mother controls family and property dealings and functions too.

The Devadiga have contributed to a classical folk art tradition called Yakshagana that is well liked in South India.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God gives the Devadiga dreams and visions leading them to Salvation.
* Pray that gospel materials and the internet will lead them to Jesus Christ.
