The Veeramushti have cousin marriages. Divorce and marrying again are allowed but permission needed. There are birth and marriage rituals. The dead are buried in a sitting position.
On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They are Hindus.
The traditional work of the Veeramushti is related to acrobatics. Most of them are laborers now. They have a council of elders to look after them. They have a nomadic lifestyle and have a low literacy level, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.
The Veeramushti in Orissa are mostly vegetarians. They too have a low level of education, that is due to poverty.
* Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
* Pray that they will not live in poverty.
