Introduction / History

The Krikati-Timbira are an indigenous people in Brazil.

What Are Their Lives Like?

About a third of the Krikati-Timbira identify as Roman Catholic, but their hearts are usually set on traditional religious practices. Only a small number are Evangelical.

What Are Their Needs?

The Krikati-Timbira people need to set Jesus apart as King of kings and Lord of lords in their hearts and minds.
