Didn't the Praxians come across in large numbers to help get rid of the Pentian rulers of Peloria? Some stayed in the Hungry Plateau as nobody else wanted it and they thought it wasn't as bad as Prax. Others could have settled across Peloria. There's a writeup somewhere, can't remember where, of a Lunar Noble who maintains a small herd of bison, but he didn't come from the Hungry Plateau - I always thought it was a bit odd, but it makes sense in this context.

I would expect that their culture would have been completely changed as they absorbed the local cultures. They might have Ancestor Worship that includes Waha, but I doubt that they would have the Praxian modes of worship, except as very small cults.

See Ya
