Introduction / History

In the Punjab of India among the Kumhar Hindus there are Sikhs as well. They speak Punjabi and read and write in Gurmukhi and Devanagari. Some are vegetarians and some are not vegetarians.

The Kumhar practice adult marriages. Divorce is not allowed. Sons inherit the property when the father dies with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They have birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated.

The Kumhar make earthen pots as their main work. They sell them to their neighbors. Some are in other work such as cultivation. The word Kumhar means maker of pots. They are called by the name Kumar too.

Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Kumhar to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials will lead them to salvation.
