Morerebi in Brazil

Introduction / History
The few people who speak Morerebi are vulnerable to having their lives and livelihoods destroyed by the outside world. As they come in contact with outsiders, they can contract diseases that they have no immunities to. They have been able to survive by hunting wild game, and finding edible plants, but if they are forced to live in Brazilian towns or cities, they will be like fish trying to live on the land.

Where are they located?
The Morerebi people live in the Amazon Basin of Brazil. They are isolated from the rest of the country by dense forests and rivers that are very difficult to navigate.

What are their lives like?
The Morerebi people have slipped in numbers because of diseases introduced from outsiders. Their isolation, however, has prevented this from become a bigger problem.

Most likely these people are very adept at living off the land God has given them. They can hunt wild game, find edible plants, and survive without the outside world.

What are their beliefs?
The Morerebi people have their own ethnic religion. People who are trying to maintain their identity and culture cling to their traditional religion. To them, "conversion" is the same as cultural assimilation.

What are their needs?
The Morerebi people need to be able to assimilate with the rest of Brazil in such a way that they are not endangered by diseases and exploitation. They are highly vulnerable as the rain forest is torn down for virgin farmland.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the Morerebi people to find a way to assimilate with Brazilian society without suffering from the usual exploitation.
