Paiaku in Brazil

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
It is estimated that there are about 200 Paiaku people living in the Amazon jungle. The Joshua Project web site says, "This people group's population is unknown or estimated to be very small. People groups with small populations may have assimilated into surrounding groups since research was last gathered. Today they may be unrecognizable as a separate group. However, to ensure that every people group is represented, the Joshua Project includes unknown and very small population groups until on-site research determines they do not exist."

Where are they located?
The Paiaku people only live in the Amazon rain forest in Brazil.

What are their lives like?
It is very possible that the Paiaku people do not even speak their own language anymore. Such a situation produces a dilemma. The loss of a language means the loss of one of the world's cultures which is tragic. However, since the Paiaku people are listed as speaking Portuguese, some new doors are open for them. They go from having no Scriptures, no gospel recordings, no JESUS Film, radio, or TV programs to having all of the above.

What are their beliefs?
The primary religion practiced by the Paiaku is ethnic religion. Ethnic religion is deeply rooted in a people's ethnic identity and conversion essentially equates to cultural assimilation.

What are their needs?
The Paiaku people need the chance to survive physically and spiritually. They are probably dying out as a people.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the Paiaku people to hear and respond to the gospel before they become assimilated into the Portuguese-speaking culture around them.
* Pray that they will love, honor, and worship the One who created them.
