Introduction / History

Kota is one of the 19 indigenous people groups in the Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu, India. Their population is relatively small. The total population recorded in 2010 is 1,972. This particular people group is classified by the government of India as one of the primitive scheduled tribes. They live only in seven villages scattered around the Nilgiris district.


What are Their Beliefs?

Few Kotas have shown interest towards the gospel. Since the late 1840's the gospel was introduced to them by Basel German Evangelical Mission. The Church of England, the Zenana Missionary Society and (from 1935) Freewill Baptist missionary Miss. Laura Belle Barnard, from the U.S. focused to reach this particular people group around Kotagiri in the Nilgiris district. Though missionaries and Christian workers tried their best to present Christ for the past 175 years through various ways and means, the Kotas have been mostly unresponsive to the gospel.
