Introduction / History
The Segidi of India live in the state of Andhra Pradesh. They speak, read and write in Telugu. Hinduism is their religion. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as their main cereal.

The Segidi have cross-cousin and uncle/niece marriages. There are marriage rituals. The bereaved and divorced can marry again. The dead are cremated. On the death of the father, the property goes to the sons.

Most of the Segidi now work in agriculture. Some of them have shops. There is a traditional caste council that looks after them and judges in disagreements. Boys are educated and girls are educated to a degree. Family welfare is used by them.

Prayer Points
* Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Segidi to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the Segidi council leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to salvation.
