The Mukkuvan of India speak, read and write in Malayalam. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal. Their name comes from the word Moger meaning to dive.
In Kerala they can divorce and marry again. They have cross-cousin marriages. They have marriage rituals and the dead are usually buried. Property goes to sons and daughters. Fishing is their main source of work. They have a community council to look after them. Hinduism is their religion.
In Pondicherry, the Mukkuvan are very similar to those in Kerala. They use traditional and modern medicines. Their literacy level is improving.
* Pray that the Mukkuvan council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
