Introduction / History

The Hrangkhol or Hrongkhol of India live in the Dima Haseo District of Assam. They are Hindus. A few of them who are Christians live in Mizoram.

The women like to smoke using small pipes. The Hrangkhol work mostly in agriculture. The floors and walls of their houses are made of bamboo and they have thatched roofs.

Hrangkhol festivals include Parangat, which means flower. It is performed to celebrate Spring on a full moon day. They believe fish represents being well off and they imitate fishing in their dances. Singing and dancing are the main part of their festivals. They have folk dancing and play traditional musical instruments.

Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead the Hrangkhol to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that they will experience Christian music and dance that will help point them to salvation.
