Munda in Bhutan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Munda people who now live in India and Bhutan originated in Southeast Asia, as far away as Indonesia.

Where are they located?
Today the Munda people are most likely to be found in central India, or even more so, in the states of Odisha, Bihar, and West Bengal. They also live in Bangladesh, and a few are in the mountains of Bhutan. Even fewer have found their way to the United States.

What are their lives like?
The Munda of India by tradition do cultivation and today many are agricultural workers. You cannot generalize about what they do for a living. Some are basket weavers, while others are office workers. They are not vegetarians but they do not eat beef. They have community councils to judge in local matters.

What are their beliefs?
Most of them are Hindus in Bhutan. The Munda worship their ancestors and things of nature like rivers and trees. They have a lot of deities, with Sing Bonga being their main one.

What are their needs?
Munda people need a spiritual hunger that will lead them to seeking and finding Christ.

Prayer Points
