Introduction / History

The Betoye are an indigenous people who live near the Cravo River of Colombia.

What Are Their Lives Like?

Betoye people are slash and burn agriculturalists who supplement their food supply through hunting and fishing. For their own consumption they grow cassava, bananas and corn. They have far less big game hunting today, so they capture smaller animals instead. They only fish in the summer when the water level is high.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Though they have a number of Roman Catholics among them, the Betoye people are mainly animistic, worshiping natural forces like their ancestors.

What Are Their Needs?

Like all other peoples of the world, the Betoye need to put their hope and trust in Jesus Christ.

Prayer Points

Pray for Betoye people who love the Lord to disciple others in his ways.
Pray for these disciples to live holy lives that draw others to the Throne of Grace.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to move in Betoye families, leading them to understand their dignity and self-worth comes from their relationship with Jesus Christ.
