The ancestors of the Lyuli people were probably a caste of singers and dancers who, because of economic hardship, had to move elsewhere. They were scattered to several countries including what is now Kyrgyzstan.
Most of the Lyuli people live in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan or Kyrgyzstan. A smaller number live in Russia.
Lyuli families have clans and sub-clans. They are closed towards anyone outside the Lyuli community, since they are not accepted by many of the peoples they meet, especially Russians and Kyrgyz. In Kyrgyzstan, they have a very low standard of living because of discrimination. Few of them are educated in their mother tongue, which will make it harder for them to retain their culture. Some earn a living by making and selling jewelry and other crafts while others work in the cattle industry.
The Lyuli people are 100 percent Sunni Muslim.
This people group needs acceptance and the chance to earn an honest living. They need to know that even if other peoples don't accept them, they are loved and accepted by the Heavenly Father.
