Kaxixo in Brazil

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
It's the government against "the invisible people." The Kaxixo are indeed a small group of people, less than 1,000, located in the heart of the Amazon River Basin. The Brazilian government claims that they do not exist, but clearly they do. The Kaxixo are a tribe located mainly in Martinho Campos as well as in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. They mostly work as field hands and servants for landholders.

The Kaxixo people have been seeking recognition of their rights as an indigenous group over the past decades. Local landholders have opposed them because it would give this tribe more leverage with the local farm owners for whom they work. It is the old political story. Often indigenous people get caught in the struggle for power and control of valuable natural resources.

The Kaxixos feel isolated and invisible, but thousands of years ago, God spoke through the prophet Hosea to the children of Israel who felt lost and "invisible." "I will say to those who are not my people, you are my people!" (Hosea 2:23). In the rest of the verse, the people responded, "You are my God.""

Where are they located?
They are in a place called Capão do Zezinho, in the Martinho Campos County, in the state of Minas Gerais.

Prayer Points
Pray that evangelists will have the opportunity to share with the Kaxixo people that God loves them and sees them in their plight. Pray for their hearts to be ready to accept Him and say, "You are my God."
