The system of bride price is still prevalent & the youngest daughter usually gets an extra price called 'Nuzum'. Earlier they practiced animism & their God was "Pathien" & sacrifices were offered for his appeasement. Now almost the whole of the tribe is converted into Christianity & they have built churches in their villages & religious rites are performed according to the tenets of Christianity. The Hmars built their villages on hill -tops & houses are constructed on wooden planks. Slash & burn system of agricultural practices is still at large amongst the Hmars.
