Introduction / History

This unreached people group has nothing recorded about their history.

Where Are they Located?

Urikkara Naicker people live in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, two states in southeastern India.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Their primary language is Telugu.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Urikkara Naiker people are primarily Hindu and worship many gods. A small number follow Islam and cultural religion. They are held in fear and bondage to false gods who dominate their lives and values.

Although the printed Bible, audio, and visual resources exist in their Telugu language, they remain unreached and unengaged. Who will reach them? The Church of Jesus Christ is growing as persecution escalates in India. Hopefully, it is a matter of a short time before truth of the gospel will reach them.

What Are Their Needs?

Urikkara Naiker people need primarily to know that Lord Jesus Christ loves them infinitely and has already provided for them to live with Him forever in His family.

They need protection from those who would rob them of their quality of life as Indian government seeks to change their culture.
