In both of my concultures they are polytheistic and ancestor worshippers. The Daga-Bundogs' religion has hardly any outside influences while the Saalangals have som Hindu beliefs mixed in with native beliefs. They do have idols, but they aren't considered holy and are often burned at the end of festivals devoted to the god the image represents (much like Hindu's often do, as I saw on a video where they threw a statue of the patron goddess of education (or arts, or both, i forget!) into the village lake). _-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_- 'The beginning calls for courage; the end demands care'
