Dhanwar of India

Introduction / History
Traditionally the Dhanwar people have been archers who make their living by hunting wild game in the forests of central Indian states of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. The Indian government regulates such activities, so the Dhanwar people are more likely to engage in making baskets or agriculture. Most are landless, and the less fortunate among them are day laborers.

What are their lives like?
Being a poor people, they seldom have the luxury of sending their children to school. That keeps their literacy rate low and their economic opportunities limited.

The Dhanwar people often use their clan names as their family names. They are marrying later, but unfortunately, their divorce rate is increasing. They live in nuclear families where property is inherited equally among all siblings, whether male or female.

What are their beliefs?
Few of them have access to mass media, so evangelistic efforts have their limitations for these 172,000 people.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the JESUS Film to become available to the Dhanwar people in a language that they can understand.
* Pray for believers to go to them in efforts to develop their economic life and to introduce them to the Christ.
