Introduction / History

The Godoberi originally began and settled in Dagestan eight or nine centuries before Christ. They speak their own language.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Godoberi primarily work in farming, horticulture and cattle production. They also maintain vineyards and beehives. They maintain patriarchal society and large families. They have a very rich folklore and legends about their national heroes and about how their villages were created.


What Are Their Beliefs?

From ancient animistic religious traditions between the 10th-14th Centuries the Godoberi converted to Islam. Their Islamic practices are still strongly influenced by animistic elements such as nature worship.


What Are Their Needs?

The Godoberi need workers to share the gospel in the Godoberi language and within the Godoberi culture.
