Orochi in Russia

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Traditionally the Orochi people made their living by fishing in their homeland, which is in some of coldest regions of Siberian Russia. In the 1930s they were given their own homeland, but this was soon changed due to their small population.

Where are they located?
The traditional Orochi homeland is in the southern part of the Khabarovsk Krai. They lived along the Amur and Kopp rivers. Later, many of them moved to Sakhalin, a Russian owned island north of Japan. Others now live in Ukraine.

What are their lives like?
Today they are nearly extinct, and their population continues to shrink. Their language is dying out; it is not a written language. The remaining Orochi people have no choice but to become russified, ie, culturally like the Russian majority.

What are their beliefs?
The Orochi people can be Buddhist, shamanistic, or marginally Russian Orthodox.

What are their needs?
A people without hope or a future are in great need of change. The Orochi people might need help in adjusting to a russified future with all that entails.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Orochi people will soon put their hope and identity in Jesus Christ rather than in their ethnicity.
* Pray for the Lord to direct the Orochi people in the path He has for them.
* Pray for the spiritual lives of the Orochi people to become fruitful as they follow Christ.
