Introduction / History

The Patari are a scheduled tribe of North India. They live in the Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh and the neighboring parts of Madhya Pradesh. They speak Hindi.

Some of the Patari are priests called Baigas. They are endogamous, meaning that they prefer marriages within their group. A community council looks after them and settles disputes, often giving fines. The leaders of the council are called Chaudhary and are regarded as natural leaders.

Most of the Patari are now farmers and share croppers. Many have migrated to the cities but have retained their identity. They are Hindus with folk beliefs. They have four sub-divisions among them.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the community council leaders the Chaudhary will come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Patari to Him.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
