Assamese Cluster – Profile
  • The Assamese cluster includes those people groups who primarily speak the Assamese language. This excludes from the cluster many other people groups living in Assam, and it excludes from the cluster the large number of people groups which have a minority of individuals speaking Assamese.
  • This cluster is one of the smaller clusters within the South Asian Peoples Affinity Bloc. It primarily includes peoples living in or near the Indian state of Assam. Assam is in the far northeast of India, bordering Bhutan and Bangladesh.
  • The Assamese language has the full Bible available, and it has several other resources available as well, such as the Jesus film.
  • This cluster is made up of both Muslims and Hindus, about equal numbers of each in terms of total population. However, there are many more Hindu people groups than there are Muslim groups in the cluster.
  • About 2/3 of the workforce of Assam is employed in agricultural production, especially producing high quality teas as well as rice and citrus. Assam has one of the best networks of higher education institutions in northeast India, and even in the entire country.
