Introduction / History

The Kalavantulu are Hindus by religion.

The Kalavantulu in Andhra Pradesh speak, read and write in Telugu. They are not vegetarians. They prefer cross cousin marriages. The divorced can marry again. The dead are buried or cremated. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property. They work in a variety of jobs such as carpentry and government service.

The Kalavantulu in Maharashtra speak Marathi and Kannada and read and write in Devanagari. Rice is eaten by them as a cereal. They work in temple service, in agriculture and as labourers. Their literacy level is low so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They have a council to settle disputes among them. They use medical benefits for themselves.

Prayer Points

* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
