Introduction / History
The Meitei of Manipur speak in Meitei and read and write in Bengali. Hinduism is their religion. They are not vegetarians who eat fish and rice as a cereal.

They have clans who look after marriages. There are marriage rituals. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. On the death of the father, the oldest son inherits the property. They work mainly in agriculture. They have a traditional council to look after them. Village courts settle disputes among them. Sport is well liked by them and polo originated in Manipur.

The Meitei live in Assam too. Here they are called Manipuri. Monogamy is the way for them in marriage. They use modern medicines and education. Weaving is a well-liked craft among them.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the the council leaders will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel materials and the internet will lead them to salvation.
