Introduction / History

Because of their habit of using the bright red sap of achiote seeds, the Tsachila people have been called the Colorado (red) people. They do this because a shaman told them this treatment would protect them from a smallpox epidemic. It worked better than they expected.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They are farmers who grow papaya, bananas, oranges and cocoa plants. They search the forest for tropical products useful for traditional medicine especially corozo and tagua. Others produce handcrafts for a living.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Though there is a strong Christian presence among the Tsachila, most are committed to the traditional religion.


What Are Their Needs?

The Tsachila people need to put all, not some of, their hope in Jesus Christ.


Prayer Points

Pray for the Lord to bless them spiritually and economically so they will know that he is Lord of all.
Pray for Tsachila disciples to make more disciples who will make even more disciples.
Pray for a spiritual hunger that will be satisfied by Jesus Christ.
