Ani of China
Approximately 5,000 people belonging to the Ani tribe live in one small area of southwest China. Today the Ani are being rapidly assimilated into the Han Chinese culture and language. Although they mostly ignore him, the Ani believe in a Creator. Today, most practice simple ancestor worship and believe in spirits that can cause disease if ceremonies are not held to placate them. Catholic and Protestant mission work in Kaiyuan County prior to 1949 failed to impact the Ani people. Although Catholic work began in the late 1800s, the first Protestant missionary in Kaiyuan was an American who came in 1914. Five years after he came, he had won only eight people to Christ. Today there are no known believers among the Ani people.
