Introduction / History

The Bhoi peoples have traditionally done manual labor, which puts them in the fourth of four caste categories. They were once nomadic.


Where Are they Located?

If there are any Nauria Bhoi left, they live in India's central state of Madhya Pradesh.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Bhoi peoples have different roles in the various states of India. In all states they do farm work. In Gujarat, they are often fishermen or water-carriers. In Odisha they have lower status because they work as leather workers. Anyone who works with "dead" materials like hides is considered polluted by Hindu society.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Nauria Bhoi is Hindu. Every family has a number of Hindu deities that they workship in hopes of gaining safety and prosperity. As Hindus, The Nauria Bhoi believe that by performing rituals and good works that they will attain moksha or freedom from the endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers and incense to their gods hoping for their blessing. There are many forms of Hinduism, each with its own deities and beliefs.


What Are Their Needs?

Ask God to deliver families and communities within the Bhoi people from fears that hinder them from embracing His blessings. They look to Hindu gods, but the only One who can save them from what they fear is the Lord Himself.


Prayer Points
