The Ingalik Degexit'an are people native to western Alaska. Their mountainous homeland is rich in fish. They once hunted wild game like caribou, moose and bears.
Fish, both fresh and dried, are key to their diet. This people group is dying out, and they might not exist in 100 years.
Their traditional religious beliefs involved making peace with the forces of nature and the living beings of the wild. Though they believed in a God and a devil, their main concern was appeasing local spirits. Their religion is described as both shamanistic and animistic.
The Ingalik Degexit'an people need to find a way to adapt to their current situation.
Pray that the few Ingalik Degexit'an Christ followers will disciple others to make even more disciples.
Pray for the Lord to protect, guide and sustain the Ingalik Degexit'an people.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to move among their elders, giving them a desire to make Jesus the center of their lives.
