Brief Profile

The Hindi people are a South Asian people from India who speak Hindi. Hindi is the official language of India. They form one of the largest South Asian people groups in North America.

Hindi are often well educated. They work in medical professions and IT market. They reside in suburbs of large metro areas often blending in with other people yet at the same time still speaking Hindi at home and being very much Hindi.

Like many other South Asian Indian peoples in North America, the Hindi proudly continue their traditional customs and religions. In fact, they do not dichotomize between the secular and the sacred. Instead, religion plays an important part in their identity.

The majority of Hindi people profess Hinduism. Their “Hinduism” is as much a lifestyle as a religion. Hindu Temples serve as a center of their social interaction with one another reinforcing their people group identity.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for effectiveness as Christians use many different strategies to share Christ with the Hindi.
