Introduction / History

The Bhil Mina are a scheduled tribe of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. The word mina means fish. They have a low literacy level, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

The Bhil Mina in Rajasthan speak Vagri and Bhil. Some of them can speak Hindi. They are not vegetarians.

Some of their clans look after marriages. They have birth rituals. The dead are buried or cremated.

The Bhil Mina work in agriculture as farmers or laborers. Hinduism is their religion. They have festivals. A council looks after them.

Prayer Points

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