Introduction / History

The Vokkaliga of India are also called Kunchitiga. Some of them have migrated to Tamil Nadu. They are also called Kunchigar there. Kunchigar is said to have come from the word kunchu which means a bunch or a tassel.

Agriculture is their traditional work. They live in Dharmapuri and other regions. They migrated from Karnataka.

The Kunchitiga speak Kannada, Tamil and Telugu. They read and write in Tamil and Telugu. There are several clans among them. Hinduism is their religion. Many are landowners. Some of them work in business and for the government.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God gives the Kunchitiga dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials and the internet will lead them to salvation.
* Pray Tamil Nadu Christians will help lead the Kunchitiga to Jesus Christ.
