Until recently, they were hunters-gatherers. With the depletion of the forest, almost the only hunting they can do now is for hornets and bats that make up part of their diet. The Chepangs are considered "socially disadvantaged" largely because of the discrimination they have endured from other neighboring ethnic groups. They have few income opportunities.
