Laki of Iran

Introduction / History
The Laks of Iran live in the southwest of the country and speak Laki which is a northwest Iranian language. They follow a traditional religion called Ahl-E-Haqq and Shia Islam. They live in Luristan Province and in Kermanshahan.

The Laks originated from the Zand dynasty that ruled some of southwest Iran in the eighteenth century. The Zands were expert in war. After the Zand dynasty was no more, the Zands went back to their original home in Luristan.

Laki has become one of the main Kurdish languages in Iran. The Lak have several tribes including the Jalilavand and the Osmanvand.

The Laks also live in some places in Western Illam and in North Lorestan.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God will give the Lak dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray for freedom for the gospel message to be given in Iran.
