Introduction / History

The 4,700 Godari people speak Telegu, and live primarily in India's eastern states of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa. They are a shoe-making community, but about one-third of them have manufacturing or processing jobs.

Most of them have nuclear families, and the males inherit the family wealth. The bride's family pays a dowry to the groom's family. Marriage rituals are performed at the groom's home. Caste based panchayats, or village councils, make decisions regarding community affairs.

The Godari people have made some headway in increasing their literacy rate, and they desire to have formal education. They have access to piped water. The Godari people use both modern and traditional medicine.


What Are Their Beliefs?

As Hindus, they worship many different family, village, and regional deities. Because they speak Telegu, a language that has many Christian resources, they can be reached by those willing to go to them.
