The new christian missionary generation subculture. They dress in cheap-looking clothes even if they are actually expensive designer-distressed clothes. Girls usually wear dresses and jewelry themed after foreign ethnicities, especially Africa. Guys wear clothes that look kinda like hand-me-downs and by this are saying that they dont care about clothes. Some overlap into hipster attire. They come across as individualistic and carefree. Do not spend much time on hair either. Not uncommon to have tatoos or girls to have nose rings. The most distinctive indicator is a cheap fabric bracelet or multitude of bracelets on the wrists or lower arm that they probably picked up on a short missions trip to Mexico. They are usually more open to things that are often considered taboo in christian culture such as drinking and smoking. They enjoy roughing it and living a simple life or at least pretend that they do. The name is derived from a merger of Christian and Hippie.
