VILLAGE PROFILE Mostly Hayu inhabits Ratatar Village at Sindhuli, an endangered indigenous peoples of Nepal. There are around 42 households, all of which were devastated in the recent earthquake. During our pre-need site assessment, xx informed us that all 42 households are in the dire need of rehabilitation. According to him, a few years ago, a big wildfire had engulfed all houses in the community. They had reconstructed the village by taking some loans, which is yet to be repaid. Therefore, the community is greatly disempowered in terms of resource to rebuild their communities after the earthquake. COMMUNITY PROFILE Hayus are another endangered indigenous peoples of Nepal, numbering a few hundred families. They live along the neighborhoods of the Maryang River, and they are also found in the districts of Sindhuli and Ramechhap. However, the village of Ratanchura in Sindhuli is considered their ancestral home. Short in stature, flat-nosed and squinty-eyed, they have their own unique language and culture. They are animists or nature worshippers, though they are highly influenced by neighboring Hindus.In socio-cultural pratices, Hayus are closer to Rais, but they do not perform Skewa Sili worship as Rais do. Some of the Hyus have begun to call themselves Rais. Hayus were nomadic until a few years ago; now they are mostly engaged in farming and wage labor. Most of them are landless and 80 percent of them live below poverty line. Almost 75 percent of them are illiterates. According to Census 2001, their total number is 1,821

  • Grave situation in Sindhuli as recovery begins
    ICIMOD - 25 May 2015

    On 19 and 20 May, a team from ICIMOD visited four northern VDCs of Sindhuli District - Baseshwor, Bhimeshwor, Jalkanya, and Ratanchura - to distribute relief materials. ICIMOD and Helvetas are collaborating in Water Use Master Plan pilot studies under the Koshi Basin Program in these VDCs. However, the Chief District Officer suggested to exclude Baseshwor VDC as there are already enough supplies from other organizations. The relief items distributed included 200 bags of rice, 200 kg lentil, 200 lit cooking oil, and 100 tarps for 200 households with about 1,000 people.
