Introduction / History

At one time the Avi Guarani were called the Chiriguanos or Chiriguano. They had a reputation for being warlike, even amongst themselves. They went so far as to attack the mighty Incans in around the time the Spanish Empire was making it’s mark in South America. They also attacked and even enslaved Spaniards, who had no qualms about killing them. After periodic rounds of rebellions, they were subjugated in 1892. They re-emerged at the Ava Guarani in 1970. Though most are in Paraguay and Argentina, some reside in Brazil.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Argentine communist, Che Guevara was attempting to start a revolution in Bolivia, but was killed by the Bolivian military in 1967. Today, Ava Guarani use what they call the "Trail of Che Guevara" as a tourist attraction in their part of South America.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Christianity is by far the largest religion among the Ava Guarani. They have a significant Evangelical population.


What Are Their Needs?

The Ava Guaraní want to recover ancestral lands and progress in the areas of education and economics. Many still live in dept peonage and forced labor.


Prayer Points

Pray for Jesus to be revealed to them as the only way, the truth and the life.
May they thirst for the word of God.
When trials come, may they turn to the true God for help and not to their old gods.
Pray for Christian leaders willing to work with them.
