Njalgulgule of South Sudan

Introduction / History
The Njalgulgule are one of seven Daju people groups. They are 2,700 in number, and they have their own language. There was a time when the Daju peoples had their own kingdom, though they were displaced by powerful empires like that of the Egyptians many centuries ago. The seven Daju groups are distinct ethnicities speaking related languages. They generally have little cultural affinity to each other.

Where are they located?
Njalgulgule people live in one of the seven Daju villages. That village is in South Sudan near the Sopo and Boro rivers. Other Daju peoples live in Sudan or Chad.

What are their lives like?
Njalgulgule people are primarily grain farmers (mainly millet, sorghum, and corn). They also hunt and gather (mainly honey, berries and wild fruits). Women perform much of the daily work, planting and sowing the crops, grinding the grain, and cooking the meals. They are also the primary house-builders. Their typical home is round with a cone roof although in the towns, houses are often rectangular. They share community chores.

What are their beliefs?
Njalgulgule people are 81 percent Muslim, and they still practice many of their traditional religious customs including the building of straw shrines to their traditional high god Kalge whom they equate with Allah of Islam. They celebrate the traditional grain harvest by pouring out water and beer beneath either a sacred tree or stone.

What are their needs?
Njalgulgule people need to know that their false gods will not provide eternal life, nor will they improve their lives in any way.

They need to learn Almighty God's role of men and women working together in obedience to Him.

They need to have Scriptural resources in their heart language.

Prayer Points

* Pray that disciples will see how to live among the Njalgulgule people to earn their trust and confidence, so that they may be of help to them in many important ways.
