History and Religion of Balinese People
Bali was known to be populated when the Metal Age began about 300 B.C. People lived in villages and buried the dead in stone sarcophagi. The Balinese are definitely a blend of the various Mongoloid peoples who moved through mainland Southeast Asia into the area now just long before historic time.
They believed in animistic and lived based on agriculture that positioning priests and princes as a high figure that inspired their society. The first great influence was done by Indian traders who brought their Hindu learning to Bali.

The hinduization of Bali was a long process for many centuries.
