Also known as Béntar or Macaguán, the Southern Barasano are part of the family of Barasano ethnic groups. They only live in Colombia.
The Southern Barasano make their living through fishing, hunting and agriculture.
Their social organization is complicated; it’s based on clans and lineages. They have their own mythology which is tied in with their shamanistic religion.
Southern Barasano shamans perform rituals that involve psychoactive substances.
This tribe is desperately trying to protect their homeland and way of life. They face displacement and violence from outside logging interests.
Pray for workers to go to the Southern Barasano people, and for their hearts to be ready to receive their Savior.
Pray for families of believers loving and serving others to grow reproducing churches.
Pray for a chain reaction of families reaching families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others.
Pray for grace and truth expanding into their entire society as all believers learn to love others.
