Introduction / History

The Kundavadiga or Kunduvadiyan are a very small tribe. They speak Malayalam, the language of Kerala, their home state in southwestern India.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Their traditional work is hunting and gathering as well as basket making. Now they work in agriculture and other work. Unlike most Hindu peoples they bury their dead rather than cremate them. They have a fifteen-day death pollution period.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Hinduism is their religion. They worship Shivan and other Hindu gods.

What Are Their Needs?

The Kundavadigas need to experience the life-giving blessings of Jesus Christ.

Prayer Points

* Pray that God sends them missionaries who can win, equip and send them to their people. * Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead them to the only savior. * Pray for a disciple making movement.
