The Dhanuk are a Scheduled Caste except in Tripura and Bihar. They are not vegetarians who like pork but do not eat beef. Rice is eaten by them as a cereal.
The Dhanuk are mainly monogamous and have arranged marriages. They have birth, marriage and death rituals. Divorce and marrying again are allowed.
Hinduism is their religion and they worship local deities too. They are not well educated so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They use traditional and modern medicines.
In Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana and Rajasthan, many work in agriculture and as laborers. In Tripura and Chandigarh many are scavengers. In Punjab they mostly work as sweepers and weavers. In Delhi they do office and other general work and are mostly landless.
Pray that Indian Christians will lead them to Jesus Christ.
Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
