Introduction / History

The Tindin (Tindi) people live in northwest Dagestan, and they have their own language along with different dialects. After 1813 this territory became part of Russia. In 1944 part of the Tindi were moved by the communists to Chechnya, and it negatively influenced their culture.

Their trade is cattle breeding and agriculture. They grow wheat, vegetables and make things of leather, wood, and wool.

The decisions of their village are made by the priest or mullah along with the elders. They meet together every Friday in the mosque for their business in a type of court based on the shariat, which has the laws the Muslims live by.

The husbands are the head of their families, and the wife is respected as a mother. Obedience of children to their parents and elders is very important. The Tindi villages are well known for religious and secular education in Dagestan. They believe they have to improve their physical perfection and spirituality. Many well known scientists and theologians in the Muslim world came from Tindis. From this nation comes scientists, teachers, doctors and specialists. They celebrate all the Muslim holidays. They value knowledge highly.


What Are Their Beliefs?

They are Muslim/Sunnite. They worship sun and rain from their animistic traditions.


Prayer Points

* Pray God would break through their intellect and animistic traditions with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
* Pray God would raise up more missionaries with a heart for the Muslim/Sunnites and for creative ways to befriend them.
