Introduction / History

Most of the Baira people live in India's southern state of Karnataka, though a few live further south in Kerala. Since Kannada is the language of Karnataka, that is the one the Baira people use the most.

They are a rural community that has traditionally lived by hunting and gathering from the forests. Commonly their children work, which is one of the reasons for their low literacy rate. Though they like to have their sons get a formal education, their daughters usually stay at home. Most of them get married as adults.

The Baira people are Hindus who worship specific deities.

Pray that they will find Jesus to be the only one worthy of their worship and praise.
