Introduction / History

The Hasala are a scheduled tribe from Karnataka. They speak Tulu among themselves and Kannada and read and write in Kannada. They are not vegetarians and they eat rice as a cereal. Hinduism is their religion.

On the death of the father, the son of the oldest sister becomes in charge of the home. The dead are buried.

The Hasala work in agriculture or as laborers. Women help with financial matters. They have a traditional leader. They have a low literacy level, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They use family welfare help.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Hasalaru in India.

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
