Introduction / History

The Gond Nagwanshi are a scheduled tribe of Madhya Pradesh in the Chhattisgarh region. They speak Chhattisgarh and read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal.

The Gond Nagwanshi have adult marriages and prefer cross-cousin marriages. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son having the most. The dead are buried.

The Gond Nagwanshi work in agriculture and cultivation. Hinduism is their religion. They like to use traditional medicines. They have a local association to look after them. Their education level is low as few children go to school, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the Association leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
