Pangwala people are a Scheduled Tribe (of a tribal background) which brings them low status in Hindu society.
The Pangwala tribe lives in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh, a state in northern India.
The Pangwala tribe lives in a very male-dominant culture.
The Pangwala people practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. They worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are many forms of Hinduism, each with its own deities and beliefs.
