Introduction / History

The Katia are a scheduled caste of Madhya Pradesh in India. Spinning thread is their traditional work but they no longer do that. They have subgroups and clans.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Katia now work in agriculture. Boys and girls are now getting educated but the gospel and other literature may need to be given in oral form.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Hinduism is their religion and they worship their own local gods. Women help in social and religious matters.


What Are Their Needs?

Many upper caste landowners have stopped giving work to people like the Katias and other Dalits who attempt to defy their ancient ways.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Katia in India.
