Where are they located?
Thathera people live in northern India in states of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

What are their lives like?
The Thatheras earn a living in metal work and selling and repairing of household utensils. Many are cultivators of land. In Bihar, many are jewelers.

They have a caste council to settle problems to do with such things as divorce and property.

Thathera people speak primarily Hindi. Many Bible resources have been produced in Hindi.

What are their beliefs?
Thathera people are Hindus and worship many gods. They celebrate most Hindu festivals.

What are their needs?
The greatest need of Thathera people is to know the almighty God who created them. They need to know that there is no God beside Him.
