Tsimihety

Pray for the Tsimihety. They live in the mountainous northern central area of Madagascar. Their name means ‘those who do not cut their hair’ which was a sign of refusal to recognise the monarch. They are considered extremely egalitarian, refusing to recognise authority. Most Tsimihety are animists with only a vague belief in a supreme being who presides over the spirit world.
