In Tamil Nadu they speak, read and write in Tamil. They are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal.
They have cousin marriages and widowers can marry again. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son having the largest amount. There are birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated.
Some of them work in agriculture. Hinduism is their religion. They are only partly favorable to education, so the gospel may need to be given in oral form too. They use family planning. A council looks after them.
The Vanniyar live in Kerala too and here they speak, read and write in Malayalam. They are educated here.
Some of them live in Pondicherry.
* Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
