Are the Domar one or seven groups? Each of their seven subgroups claim to have separate community status.
They are considered to be a Hindu people group, but like many people groups that are actually tribal, those from a rural background are not aware of the caste system. Hindus put the Domars at the bottom level.
Domars eat beef and pork, and they have their own sacred specialists. They work as house cleaners, and they play musical instruments during ceremonies. These facts indicate low status and low caste. Other Domar people make winnowing fans or work for municipal boards, railways, or hospitals.
The Domar people have an interesting way of punishing members of their community. If someone is tried and found guilty in a trial, they are either shunned or forced to pay for a penal feast for the community. Their literacy rate is very low: less than nine percent can read, so those who want to take them the gospel should not rely on printed materials.
The Domars have their own family deities.
The Domar people need the abundant life that only Jesus Christ can offer their families and communities.
Pray for audio and visual evangelistic materials to find their way into Domar settlements.
Pray for Christ's ambassadors to use dramas and story-telling to help them see the glory of the Risen Lord.
Pray for the Domar culture to be renewed and enhanced by a work of the Holy Spirit and shaped into a God-centered and God-honoring mold.
Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers who will be compelled to nurture a disciple making movement among the Domar people.
