Traditionally the Kamti Bhoi were agricultural laborers. They are considered a nomadic tribe that migrated from India.
Kamti Bhoi people are all over India, especially in the states of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal. A smaller number live in southern Nepal.
The Kamti Bhoi community in Nepal is mainly a landowning one, but a few are landless. A Brahmin priest officiates at their marriages. At the wedding, the bride and groom walk around a fire seven times.
Every Kamti Bhoi house has an altar to Manasamata, a Hindu god. Beside this, there are images of Khandoba and a few other gods and goddesses. Every family has a number of deities.
Vocational believers may have opportunities to live among the Kamti Bhoi people, creating opportunities to be in daily contact with them to earn respect, and confidence, and hopefully the privilege to speak God's truth in their midst.
Though Kamti Bhoi have a high standing within their culture, they are poor, needy, and without hope in this world without their Savior and sin-bearer.
There may be no followers of Jesus among the Hindu Kampti Bhoi community at present; pray for fellowships and disciple making movements to soon emerge among them.
Pray that the Kampti Bhoi community will care for their families above their deities.
Pray they will make schooling a priority for their children, so the children will be equipped to live in modern times.
