Aimaq Cluster – Profile
  • The Aimaq cluster is part of the Persian-Median Affinity Bloc. The peoples in this Bloc speak related languages that have their origins some 3,500 years ago. Peoples in the Aimaq cluster traditionally speak the Aimaq language, which is in the Indo-Iranian language family. The literacy rate for speakers of this language is given as 5-15%. Aimaq is not a writtten language.
  • The Aimaq language does not have recorded scripture available, nor does it have Gospel recordings or other media. However, many Aimaq people now also speak other languages, such as Dari, which do have resources available.
  • The term Aimaq is probably derived from the Turkish "Eimak", which means tribe.
  • Once nomadic peoples, they were forced by cycles of severe drought and war into semi-nomadic lives, traveling seasonally to graze decimated herds and/or subsisting as sedentary farmers and carpet weavers in mud-brick villages.
  • There are no reports of followers of Jesus Christ among the 2,000,000 individuals in the Aimaq cluster. They have few if any resources available in their traditional language. They are largely cutoff from the life-giving message of Christ.
  • Peoples of the Aimaq cluster reside in Afghanistan, Iran, and Tajikistan, which are all quite difficult for Christians to enter for purposes of ministry. Perhaps Persian Christians in Iran will be lead by God's Spirit to find Aimaq people in their land in order to tell them of Christ.
