Introduction / History

The traditional vocation of the Moger was hunting and gathering, and the name Moger is derived from a Tulu word meaning rabbit. They are subdivided into a number of matrilineal clans. The Moger people live in the southern state of Karnataka and speak Kannada, the language of that state.


What Are Their Lives Like?

At present, many are employed as agricultural laborers. They accept water and cooked food from those they consider to be high caste. They marry across clan lines but not outside the Moger community.


What Are Their Beliefs?

They are Hindus and worship spirits such as Panjurli, Kallurti, Guliga, and Bobbariya.


What Are Their Needs?

The Moger people need the Holy Spirit to open their eyes so they can see Jesus.


Prayer Points

There has been no indication any of the Moger have come to follow Jesus Christ. However, we can have confidence there will be believers someday among the Moger, and we can pray for them even now. Pray they will be zealous to know and serve the Lord.

Pray the Moger people will come into contact with Christian believers in other communities who are real disciples of Jesus, people who will demonstrate the love of Christ to them.

Pray for the Moger people to have the spiritual hunger it takes to seek and find the Lord of lords.
