The Marma practice shifting cultivation, and many cut wood and bamboo which are sold to the Bengalis. The Marma tend to be rather isolated from the majority population, though this has been changing as more and more Bengalis move into the hill tract areas. The Marmas are mostly Buddhists in faith, yet animism is also in practice. They participate in important Buddhist religious festivals, as well as perform various rites and rituals to satisfy different gods.
