Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Dahait people form several of the forest tribes of India's central state, Madhya Pradesh. They traditionally they have been village watchmen. The vast majority of them live in rural areas.

What are their lives like?
Though they are Hindus, they eat meat. They worship Hindu deities, especially Shiva, the god of destruction, and Hanuman, the monkey god. Along with the Hindu gods, they appease and worship village deities. They also worship their ancestors every year.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the true God to raise up His ambassadors to go to the Dahait people with the good news of Christ's power to save sinners.
* Pray that they will make room in their hearts for Jesus, and turn their backs on the Hindu gods they now worship.
