Introduction / History

There are only 200 Chandhai Maru people. Traditionally they have survived as hunters and gatherers, but as the forests of Orissa have diminished, many have become day laborers. Adult marriage is the rule for the Chandhai Maru people. They are getting married later than they did in previous generations. Most of them live in nuclear families. They are not eager to get educated. Most of them speak Oriya, the language of their home state of Orissa.


What are Their Beliefs?

Though they practice traditional tribal religion, Hinduism is making its mark on their spiritual lives. At this time, there are no followers of Christ among them.


Prayer Points

* Pray for the Lord to reveal Himself to these tribal people. Pray that soon the Chandhai Maru people will have access to Christian resources.
