Metyktire of Brazil

Introduction / History
The Metyktire are an indigenous people living in Brazil in the Menkregnoti reservation of the Amazon. First contact was made with them when two of their tribesmen came to a Kayapo village earlier this century.

The Metyktire are thought to be formerly a part of the Kayapo tribe and that they moved deeper into the jungle. They speak a Kayapo language. They are difficult to find as there is much jungle where they are and have few rivers close by. This is an obstacle to the gospel. They wear no clothes and the women shave their heads.

The government of Brazil does not allow contact with them except with doctors to prevent the spread of diseases among them.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Brazilian government will allow them to be evangelized and that they will be protected from diseases.
* Pray that they will find Jesus Christ and come to him.
