The Tiwa of India who are also called Lalung live in Assam and Megalahaya. Tiwa means people who were lifted from below. There are Hill Tiwas and Plains Tiwas.
The Hill Tiwas live in the Karbi Anglong district of Assam and in Megalahaya. They speak a Tibeto Burman language. Many follow their traditional religion of worshipping local gods. They have a chief who looks after them.
The Plains Tiwas are in the southern bank of the Brahmaputra Valley. They speak Assamese. They have a religion of their own that is mixed with Hinduism too.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that Indian Christians will seek the Tiwas and lead them to salvation.
