Introduction / History

The Katkari are a scheduled tribe of India. The name Katkari relates to the juice of the acacia catechu tree. They have a low literacy level so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

In Maharashtra the Katkari speak Marathi. They are not vegetarians and eat rice and millet as cereals. They believe in monogamy, have adult marriages and the dead are cremated. Their main work is agriculture and labouring. It has been said that sorcery has been used by them. They have a Community Council to settle disputes. Hinduism is their religion.

In Rajasthan the Katkari eat wheat and maize as cereals. They work in forest labour.
In Dadra and Nagar Haveli they speak Kokni.

The Katkari also live in Gujarat and Karnataka.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the Community Council leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Katkari to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will bring them to Salvation too.
