The Bawm people speak their own language, and they have some written materials in their language such as the Bible, hymns, small books, etc. 100% of the Bawm call themselves Christian. Most of them are jhum (slash-and-burn shifting agriculture) farmers. Some of them are teachers, NGO workers, or pastors, preaching the Gospel to the Mru, to the Khumi, and to other ethnic communities of the Chittagong Hill Tracts.
