Introduction / History

The Lokono are an Arawak people who live primarily along the northern fringe of South America. Though the largest number is in Guyana, they also live in French Guiana, Suriname, Venezuela and the United States.

What Are Their Lives Like?

In the United States, the Lokono Arawak blend in with other Latin American groups.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Traditionally they had a flexible way to deal with spiritual matters. A Lokono Arawak can associate with their traditions, or they may chose not to. This has affected the way they view the Christian faith. The Lokono Arawak are most highly reached with the gospel in Guyana, but there is a strong Christian presence among them in all the other nations where they live except French Guiana.

What Are Their Needs?

The Lokono Arawak need to put all their trust in Jesus Christ, King of kings.
