Introduction / History

The Hrangkhol or Hrongkhol people live in the Dima Haseo District of Assam State in northeastern India, but most of them live over the border in Myanmar.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Hrangkhol people work mostly in agriculture. The floors and walls of their homes are made of bamboo and they have thatched roofs. The women like to smoke using small pipes. Hrangkhol festivals include Rualsafak, which is a harvest festival. They believe fish represents being well off, so they imitate fishing in their dances. Singing and dancing are the main part of their festivals. They have folk dances where they play traditional musical instruments.


What Are Their Beliefs?

In India they are officially Hindu, but over the border in Myanmar, they are better described as animistic. In both cases, they fear and serve spiritual forces that hold them back. There is a Christian minority in both countries, so they can be reached by their own people.


What Are Their Needs?

They need the opportunity to accept the abundant life only Jesus Christ can offer. Who will disciple them? These people for whom Lord Jesus died and paid the penalty for their sins need to know He loves them infinitely and wants them to live in His home forever.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Hrangkhol in India.

* Pray that Indian believers will lead the Hrangkhol to a movement to Christ that will bless their entire community spiritually and socially. * Pray that they will experience Christian music and dance that will help point them to faith in the Savior. * Pray for a disciple making movement among them to flourish both in India and in Myanmar.
