The meaning of the word kharam is supposed to be the term for "that land." The Kharam are a scheduled tribe who live in Manipur. Kharam Pallen village is the place where most of them live. They speak their own Kharam language.
Cultural activities are important to them such as singing and dancing. The Kharam people have several clans. These clans used to be large in number but are now much smaller. They have a chief who is controlled by the village council. He has to follow certain rules including what he must eat or else he can lose his position.
Christianity is their main religion. It is unknown how many of them are evangelicals. Some of them have their old religion of animism.
The Kharam people need a spiritual revival that will compel them to cling to the Savior, and teach others of His ways.
Pray that those claiming to be Christian have a clear understanding of what it means and give their lives to Jesus Christ if they have not done so. Pray the councils come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
