Introduction / History

The Bakad or Nador people live mainly in the Uttar Kannad district of Karnataka. The name Nador is an altered form of the term Nadavar, which means countrymen or natives of the land. Torke Nador and Uppu Nador are the two endogamous groups among the Nador, who have adopted Naik and Nayak as their titles respectively. The Nador have matrilineal clans such as, Ajjana, Ane, Chendi, Ganga, Hole, Hone, Nag, Shitti and Shiva, etc.

The Nador speak the Kannada language and use the Kannada script. Their staple food consists of rice, ragi and pulses. Monogamy is practiced among the Nador. They have vertically extended families. The Nador have a hereditary headman called Yajamana in their traditional caste council.

Agriculture and horticulture are the traditional occupations of the Nador. The Nador women participate in agricultural activities and animal husbandry. The Nador have a flair for wall and floor painting. They also perform folk-plays known as Yakshagana as a hobby.

Alternate names: Torke Nador, Uppu Nador


Prayer Points

* For the salvation of the Nador people and that God may send several Christian workers among them and meet their spiritual and physical needs.
* For developmental work among them and for vocational training for the under-privileged.
