Vetan means hunter as that is what they were but not many of them hunt today. The Vetam live in Tamil Nadu and Kerala, India’s two southernmost states. They speak, read and write in Tamil.
The Vetan do fortune telling and work in agriculture. They have a community council to look after their interests. The Vetan marry their cousins and they are mostly monogamous. They allow for divorce and the bereaved can marry again. On the death of the father, the sons inherit the property.
Hinduism is their religion.
The Vetan people need the transforming power of the Holy Spirit so they can experience His spiritual, economic and social blessings offered by Jesus Christ to those who call on His name.
* Pray for spiritual openness to the claims of Christ. * Pray for faithful intercessors and workers to go to them. * Pray that Indian believers will lead them to a community-wide movement to Christ.
