The 37,000 Hali people live in India's mountainous state of Himachal Pradesh where they engage in farm work. Either they till their own soil or they work as sharecroppers for others. Some of them are hired to remove carcasses by other communities. They are noted for being expert weavers. A few of them have been able to get a better education and rise to white collar jobs.
They get married as adults. Divorce is allowed on the grounds of adultery, maladjustment or cruelty. Unlike most other communities, if there is a divorce, the children stay with the father, not the mother. Women do all the household chores and engage in religious and political activities.
These Hindus get members of other communities to perform their life-cycle rituals. Exorcists come from their own community. Unlike many of the other scheduled castes, they don't speak one of India's major languages, so gospel materials are harder to come by for them.
Pray for gospel materials such as the JESUS Film to become available in a language the Hali people can understand.
Pray for the gospel message to penetrate their hearts.
Pray for the Lord to send dreams and visions to Hali elders and community leaders.
