Week of Dec 6th – The Khati of India

This continues a series that will focus on an unreached people group.  These are the bottom 40 Least-engaged Peoples, meaning that there is no ministry known to be going on within the group.  According to the population number, every 50,000 people is assigned a potential missionary, so, you can see how many missionaries are needed for each peoples.  Here is the eighth group:

Khati of India

Population:  1,828,065

Religion:  Hinduism

Missionaries Needed:  36

Language:  Hindi and secondary languages of Rajasthan

According to Hindu mythology, the Khati are decendents of Lord Vishwakarma, the supposed engineer of universe. The original Khati performed yagas and experiments and were called rishis. This sect of Brahmins believed in hard work and taught engineering and science. These are the people with born intellect and are natural engineers. They enjoyed the same status as scientists and engineers. However this was challenged due to the Industrial Revolution in various parts of world as the Khati’s traditional skills were shattered. In the recent century they have managed to regain their high status and most of the top engineering posts are held by Khati. The Khati believe in hard work and are gifted to be engineers and perform best in any technical field.
