Introduction / History

The Tirgar are a scheduled caste. Their name comes from their traditional work of making arrows. Hinduism is their religion.

The Tirgar in Gujarat speak, read and write in Gujarati. They are not vegetarians who eat beef and pork and rice as a cereal. Women help with finances. The demand for arrows came to an end and these days they work as agricultural and industrial laborers. They have clans who look after marriages. They use government benefits.

In Rajasthan, the Tirgar speak Marwari and Hindi. They eat wheat. Here the literacy level is low, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They mostly use traditional medicines.
