Introduction / History

There are only about 700 Chakali people, an extremely small group by Indian standards.

What Are Their Lives Like?

They commonly marry their cousins. There is an increase in their divorce rate. Chakali people marry either as children or as adults.

What Are Their Beliefs?

They are 100 percent Hindu; as far as we know, there are no followers of Christ among them. Most of them speak either Oriya or Telegu. Both of these are major languages in India, and there are many Christian resources in both of them. The Chakali people are not inclined to listen to the radio or watch television.

Prayer Points

* Pray that the Chakali people will somehow hear the Word of the Lord and respond by giving Christ their undivided devotion.
