Traditionally they were either hippopotamus hunters or leather workers. These two professions gave them low status in the social hierarchy. They were not as low as slaves. They once had their own language, but now they speak the main language of Ethiopia, Amharic.
The Weyto people live only in Ethiopia.
Most of the people of rural Ethiopia either farm or herd livestock.
The Weyto people are Muslims. They adhere to the basics of Islam, but on a day to day basis, they depend on the spirit world for their needs. There are some who are considered Christian, but most likely they also depend on the spirit world more than Jesus Christ.
Like most other people groups in this part of the world the Weyto people need running potable water and electricity. If those two needs were met, they would have all kinds of doors opening for them.
* Scripture Prayers for the Negedbeher, Weyto in Ethiopia.
* Weyto people need a spiritual hunger that will drive them to find their savior.
* Missionaries need to go to them to help with their physical and spiritual needs.
* There needs to be a Disciple-Making movement among the Weyto people so that all of them can have an adequate chance to respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
