Introduction / History

According to peoplegroups.com this is a very small people group that is unengaged with the gospel. Their language is endangered as their young people are speaking Bahasa, the official language of Indonesia. Most likely, they will not survive long as a separate people group.


Where Are they Located?

The Bahonsuai people live only on Sulawesi Island, Indonesia.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Bahonsuai people have their own language, with the same name as them as a people.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The primary religion practiced by the Bahonsuai is Islam, a monotheistic religion built around the teachings of the Koran and of the prophet Muhammad. They mix their Islamic beliefs with animism, a belief in the spirit world.


What Are Their Needs?

This people group needs to put their identity in the King of kings, and enjoy being part of His eternal family, since their days as a distinct people seem to be coming to an end.
