Tanti (Hindu traditions) in India

pronounced: TAHN-tee

The Tanti people are found across the northeastern portion of India. They are said to have originated as weavers, providers of cloth, back in history as far as ancient Bengal. Not too long ago, virtually every home would have had a loom and cloth present. Today, much of their trade has been taken over by factory production and imported goods. They are considered among the lower castes of India.

Ministry Obstacles

The Tanti community speaks over 15 languages, residing in 30 states of India. Reaching them with the Gospel of Christ will require a multi-pronged approach.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for discovery Bible studies to spread rapidly as they bless Tanti families and communities.

Scripture Focus

The Lord is good and does what is right; He shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way. Ps 25:8-9

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from today’s people group to have the humility to learn from the Lord and follow His ways.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the few followers of Jesus among the Tanti people, that they will live a life worthy of the calling they have received, being patient, bearing with one another in love. The Tanti community has a great need for clean water to help with sanitation issues. Since so much of this group is found in rural India, they do not have ready access either to sanitation or medical facilities.
