Introduction / History

Kadar people in Bangladesh are different from Kadar forest dwellers who live in India.


Where Are they Located?

Most Kadar people live either in Bihar or in southern India, though a smaller number live in Bangladesh.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They speak Angika and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and they mainly eat wheat and rice.

The Kadar prefer adult marriages. They have birth and marriage rituals. The divorced and bereaved can marry again.

The Kadar are landless and most work as agricultural laborers. They have a caste council to judge in matters for them. They are not well educated so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Hinduism is their religion. As a general rule, Hindus are pragmatic in their spiritual lives. They will worship whatever spirit being they believe will help them in their daily lives.


What Are Their Needs?

Their greatest need is to understand that Almighty Creator God loves them and has provided the answer to their sin problem.

Since they are largely illiterate, audio and visual Bible resources are necessary to reach them with the gospel. They exist in the languages of the Kadar people.

They are poor, so they need people to come along side to teach them productive life skills.
