Introduction / History

The Arayan of India live in the State of Kerala. They speak, read and write in Malayalam. Rice is the cereal they eat and they are not vegetarians.

The Arayan have the same shares regards inheritance usually but sometimes women get less property. They have birth and marriage rituals. The wealthy among them cremate the dead while the others bury the dead.

Most of the Arayan work in fishing. Some own land and work in agriculture. They are Hindus by religion. The children are educated to secondary level while some go further. They use traditional and modern medicines. They make use of welfare benefits for themselves.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give the Arayan dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
