Introduction / History

Ingush people originated in southwestern Russia's North Caucasus Mountain region, specifically in Dagestan. Their language is closely related to that of the Chechens.

Their land has been invaded for so many times that Ingush people have learned ways to defend themselves. Some retreated further into the mountains to protect themselves from invaders. Even their mountain homes weren't safe; in the dead of winter the Soviet government forced Chechen and Ingush people to move to Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan or Kyrgyzstan, and one-fourth of their population lost their lives either in transit or soon after. The grandchildren of the survivors still live in the Central Asian countries.


Where Are they Located?

The Ingush people live in southwestern Russia's North Caucasus Mountain region, specifically in Dagestan, but some live in Uzbekistan or Kyrgyzstan.


What Are Their Lives Like?

No matter where they live, the Ingush people love their cultural traditions. They have their own epics, folk tales, proverbs, dance, and music. Those who live in Uzbekistan still enjoy these cultural events.

Sadly, one of the ways Ingush and other Caucasian peoples have learned to defend themselves is by not trusting outsiders. They have not experienced grace or mercy, nor do they provide it for others, except the very few who become long-lasting, trusted friends.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Ingush people are Sunni Muslims, but there are some Sufi mystics among them as well.


What Are Their Needs?

The Ingush people need to experience God's grace and mercy in such a way that they will internalize it and share it with others.


Prayer Points

* Pray for breakthroughs of Jesus' grace in Ingush villages leading to spiritual freedom and transformation.
* Pray for a Disciple-Making movement to spread throughout Ingush communities.
