Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Bhoi peoples have traditionally done manual labor, which puts them in the fourth of four caste categories. They were once nomadic

Where are they located?
Nikhad Bhoi people live mainly in northern and central India, but a smaller number are in Nepal.

What are their lives like?
The Bhoi peoples have different roles in the various states of India. In all states they do farm work. In Gujarat, they are often fishermen, water-carriers. In Odisha they have lower status because they work as leather workers. Anyone who works with "dead" materials like hides is considered polluted by Hindu society.

What are their beliefs?
Nikhad Bhoi is a Hindu community. Every family has a number of Hindu deities that they worship in hopes of gaining safety and prosperity. As Hindus, The Nikhad Bhoi believe that by performing rituals and good works that they will attain moksha or freedom from the endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers and incense to their gods hoping for their blessing. There are many forms of Hinduism, each with its own deities and beliefs.

What are their needs?
Ask God to deliver families and communities within the Bhoi people from fears that hinder them from embracing His blessings. They look to Hindu gods, but the only One who can save them from what they fear is the Lord Himself.
