Introduction / History
The Miranha Bora in Brazil are a tribe of Indians living in the Amazon. The Miranha and Bora are related and speak similar languages. They are looked on as one people. The Miranha move about to different regions due to work selling fish and fruit. Many Miranha in Brazil now speak Portuguese.

The Bora live mainly in Peru but also in Colombia and the Brazilian Amazon. They live mostly in forest settlements and speak Bora. They are animists and believe that there is no difference between the spiritual and natural world. The Bora are exogamous and so marry outside their own people group. They have bows and arrows for weapons and have a very good knowledge about plants.

Prayer Points
* Pray that South American Christians will lead the Bora Miranha to Jesus Christ.
*Pray that the government in Brazil will allow the evangelization of small tribes of the Amazon.
