Introduction / History

The Taurepang are an indigenous people who live within the Terras Indígenas São Marcos and Raposa Serra do Sol regions of Brazil. They have other First Nations peoples as their neighbors. Their land is coveted by cattle ranchers, so they must protect themselves from outsider.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Taurepang are slash and burn farmers. They grow banana, papaya, squash, potatoes, beans, rice, tapioca, farinha, beiju and manioc. Families have a shed where they spend much time processing and grating manioc for their communal meals. They also keep cattle herds, both as a community and as families.
In areas where there is game, the Taurepang hunt. There is water for fishing, but most of the fish they catch are small.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Though some identify as Roman Catholic, most remain animistic, worshipping gods of nature, etc.


What Are Their Needs?

The Taurepang are a small people group. They will need to adapt to the outside world, so they won’t die out as a tribe.


Prayer Points

Pray for the Taurepang people who love the Lord to disciple others to take Christ to their families.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to move mightily in their churches, drawing many to put all their trust in Jesus Christ.
Pray for them to seek the Lord’s guidance as they face the uncertainties of the future.
