Introduction / History
The Paik of India live in Orissa and Bihar. The name Paik (also called Paiko) comes from the word 'soldier'.

In Orissa the Paik speak, read and write in Oriya and speak Hindi too. They eat vegetables, fruit and rice. Marriage is by discussion and a bride is paid. The divorced and bereaved can marry again. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son in charge of the home. There are birth and marriage rituals and the dead are cremated. They are mainly landless and work in agriculture, fishing and laboring. They have a community council to look after them. Hinduism is there religion. Their literacy level is low so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too.

In Bihar the Paik speak in Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They work in cultivation, business and as laborers. Their boys are educated more than their girls. They use traditional and modern medicines.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Paik councils come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
