Introduction / History

The Kado are one of 18 groups combined by the Chinese authorities to form the official Hani nationality. A smaller number live in Laos. The Kado possess their own language, although diminishing numbers of Kado children are now able to speak it. Many Kado in China have become culturally indistinguishable from the Han Chinese.

The Kado language is part of the Bi-Ka branch of the Tibeto-Burman language family. It is most similar to Biyo and Woni. In Myanmar there there are six Kado dialects reported. Kado is not the same as Katu, a Mon-Khmer language spoken in Vietnam and Laos, nor is it the same as Kaduo, the Tibeto-Burman language spoken by the Mongols in Yunnan.


Where Are they Located?

Most Kado people live in China where they have a vibrant Church. There is a smaller number of them in Laos who do not yet have a gospel witness.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The family is very important to the Kado people in both China, where they have a strong gospel witness, and in Laos, where they do not. Kado believers in China can demonstrate how families can love and respect one another in such a way that their witness is irresistible to others. Pray for this to be the case.


What Are Their Beliefs?

in Laos practice ethnic religion, which puts them in bondage to various spirit beings that are in rebellion against the King of kings.


What Are Their Needs?

The Kado people need to have contact with those in China who can show them the way to spiritual blessings and eternal life in Christ.
