Introduction / History

The Berad live in Maharashtra. They speak Telugu, Kannada and Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. Hinduism is their religion and they worship Shiva. They are vegetarians who eat rice.

The Berad marry young, girls at twelve, boys at eighteen. Divorce is allowed, mainly by the husband. On the death of the father, the sons inherit the property. Women help with activities including rituals.

The Berad work as cultivators and in agriculture, as laborers and in small businesses. They make their living from the land and forest but are no longer hunters. Family planning is used by them.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will help lead the Berad to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
