The Sartangs are a subtribe of the much larger and better known Monpa people.
The small Sartang tribe lives in India's northeastern Arunachal Pradesh state. More specifically, they live in two villages in the Kameng District. Their language is one of the Kho-Bwa languages of northeastern India.
The Sartangs are surrounded by other tribes. There are many tribes in this region, and their religious and other practices sometimes get blended together.
The Sartang people live in a unique part of India. Within 300 miles, there are people who are majority Hindu, Muslim, Christian, or Buddhist. Officially they are Buddhists, but their beliefs are probably more animistic than anything. Like most tribal people who are considered Buddhist, the Sartangs try to appease the spirit world in exchange for favors like good health and a good harvest.
The Sartangs need to find the Savior who alone can offer abundant, eternal life.
