Introduction / History

The Barad people are also called the Barar, the Burar or the Berar. Most live in Himachal Pradesh, a state in northern India where less than one in a thousand has put their faith in Christ.

Traditionally these rural people have made winnowing fans and grass mats. Some beg for a living. Their literacy rate is extremely low, even by the standards of the developing world. They give women equal status to men. Unlike many people groups in India, they do not practice child marriage; they are much more likely to marry as teenagers.

These Hindus worship and propitiate the gods of Hinduism and their own family and clan gods.

Pray that the Barad people will put all of their faith in the God who created them.
