Introduction / History

There are 108,000 Dagi people, most of whom live either in Delhi or Himachal Pradesh. The latter state is highly mountainous. There are Tibetan Buddhists in Himachal Pradesh, and the Dagi form of Hinduism includes some Buddhist elements. Like animistic peoples, they appease local spirits.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Their traditional occupation was to play musical instruments at festivals and celebrations, but many of them now engage in farming. Economically they are not doing well, partially because they have a low literacy rate. They have migrated to different parts of northern India for economic reasons.


Prayer Points

* Pray for the Holy Spirit to cause a spiritual breakthrough among the Dagi people.
