Dotyali (Nepal)

The Doteli (Dotyali) language is spoken by around 800,000 people, mostly in western Nepal. The Dotyali speakers are descendants of the former Khas empire and are mostly Hinduistic with significant animistic and shamanistic practices. There are four main dialects and language experts say that “there is strong language vitality,” and it is used for all important communications such as family and clan celebrations, weddings, funerals and important village matters.

Nepal is composed of 14 administrative zones and 75 districts and Dotyali speakers are thought to reside in the districts of Baitadi, Dadeldhura, Doti, the southern parts of Bajhang and Darchula, and the northern parts of Kailali and Kanchanpur districts.

Less than 1% of this people group are believed to be Christian and "The Ancient Path" Gospel booklet will clearly present Christianity as an Eastern “religion” with origins before Buddha and Hindu religious sources. Pray that the circulation of "The Ancient Path" in each of the four dialects would provide a way for the few Christians in this group to explain more about what they believe.
