Introduction / History

The Kutana people have low status. They live in the western states of India. A small number are in Pakistan.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Kutana people are landless. They work in transportation, business and as day laborers. Some are local politicians. Many of them mill rice, and their prized possession is a portable rice miller. They are much more likely to educate their boys than their girls. They have an association and council to look after them.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Kutana people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are other Hindus who are much more philosophical, especially among the Brahmins.

Almost all Hindus participate in yearly celebrations like Holi, the festival of colors and the start of spring / Diwali, the festival of lights / Navratri, the celebration of autumn / and Rama Navami, Rama's birthday.


What Are Their Needs?

There are few if any believers among this people group that lives in the highly unreached states of Gujarat and Rajasthan. Who will reach across caste lines and tell them about the one who came to save Hindus?

With few if any believers in their community, the Kutana people need prayer. Hopefully there will be faithful intercessors who will pray for them until there is a spiritual breakthrough.


Prayer Points

Since there are few believers among them, pray for the Lord to intervene through dreams and visions. Pray for the Lord to provide physical and spiritual prosperity for the Kutana community, and that they will respond with thankfulness to him.

Pray that God will provide contacts, strategies and wisdom for believers so that the Kutana can learn that the one and only God of the Bible will provide them with true hope, salvation, and joy in life.

Pray for a strong movement of the Holy Spirit will bring entire Kutana families into a rich experience of God's blessing.
