Introduction / History
The Khyang people live in Bandarban and Rangamati districts of the Chittagong Hill Tracts in southeast Bangladesh. Their main profession is farming, and some of them are NGO workers or teachers. There are two main Khyang language varieties, known as Kongtu and Laitu. The Khyang speak these language varieties in their communities. Some of them also speak some other neighboring languages such as Chittagonian, Bawm, Chakma, and Marma. They don't have any written materials in their language. The Christian people are trying to use Bawm and/or Bangla Christian literature. There is also a significant number of Buddhists among the Khyang. Missionaries from outside could be useful in preaching, giving healthcare, etc.
