Brief Profile

The Kuripako (Curripaco) are an indigenous people group who have come to the USA from their countries of origin in Venezuela, Brazil, and Colombia.

In their home countries, they rely mainly on manioc cultivation and fishing for subsistence. They are also known for their skilled production of fine basketry.

Their primary language is Curripaco and their primary religion is an ethnic religion which is deeply rooted in their ethnic identity. Conversion essentially equates to cultural assimilation.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for the Kuripako to find peace in Jesus Christ.
  • Pray that the gospel would spread rapidly among the Kuripako.
  • Pray for Kuripako believers to be bold in spreading their faith to their unreached people in their native lands, as well as to other people groups.
