Karapoto in Brazil

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Though many Brazilian tribes are still undiscovered by the outside world, some have been in contact with the Portuguese speaking majority for a long time. Among these are the Karapoto people, who are somewhat assimilated with Brazilian society.

Where are they located?
Unlike most indigenous tribes of Brazil, the Karapotos live in the eastern part of the country, away from the undeveloped interior.

What are their lives like?
They have their own language which is being replaced by Brazil's trade language, Portuguese. This people group is sedentary, not nomadic like some of the other tribes of Brazil. They are farmers and herders.

What are their beliefs?
Most Karapoto associate themselves with their own ethnic religion. In their minds they think that another way of worship disconnects them from their traditions, ethnicity, and society. There are a handful of Karapoto who have put their faith in Jesus Christ, but no church planting has transpired among them for many years.

What are their needs?
Like most tribes of Brazil, the Karapoto need to be able to adjust to a world that was forced upon them. Some have accepted Christianity, but few have embraced the Lord Himself.

Prayer Points
Pray that the Holy Spirit will fill the hearts of the few Karapoto believers with love for their unsaved friends and relatives.
Pray that He will renew their faith and ignite their souls with the desire to see their people group know the One True God Who created them.
Pray that the veil would drop from the spiritual eyes of the unsaved tribesman, and they would recognize and joyfully accept Jesus Christ as the Savior of their souls.
Pray urgently that their lives will soon be abundant and full of worship and praise for Almighty God in their own, culturally distinct way.
