Ziona Chana, Polygamist Who Had One of World’s Largest Families, Dies in India

A man who led one of the world’s largest families died earlier this week. Ziona Chana lived in Northeast India with his 39 wives, 94 children, and 33 grandchildren. They all dwelled together in a massive, 100-room purple-pink building in a remote village. Reportedly, the family’s unusual structure made them something of a tourist attraction. The 70-something Ziona was head of a Christian group that allowed polygamy. The Chana Pawl sect was founded by Ziona’s grandfather in 1942.
