Introduction / History
The Bhil Tadvi are a scheduled tribe. In Maharashtra they speak Bhili. Bread, wheat and rice are eaten by them.

They have cousin marriages and divorce is allowed. They have a religion of both Hinduism and Islam. Agriculture is their main work. Boys are educated and girls to a lesser degree. Boys are circumcised.

The Bhil Tadvi live in Madhya Pradesh too. They have a traditional community council to look after them.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
* Pray that Indian Christians will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials will lead them to salvation too.
