The Kitsai is a subgroup of the Wichita tribe. Their language is associated with that of the Pawnee. Each of the Wichita subgroups have their own traditional dances.
Before their land was taken from them, they were excellent farmers who grew corn, beans, squash and pumpkins. They hunted deer and buffalo. They were ruled by a council of warriors. Every Kitsai village had a chief and an assistant chief. Though a man could have more than one wife, families usually included husbands, wives, their adult sons and his wife.
The 19th century was a terrible time for them. Disease and relocation decimated their population. They were moved from Texas to Oklahoma where most live today.
Today the few remaining members of the Kitsai tribe are adjusting to a world not their own. Like other Native Americans, some have adjusted while others have given up hope.
The Kitsai people are mostly Christian of some form. Often their faith is in a religious institution rather than the savior.
The Kitsai need to put their faith and hope in Jesus Christ. They need to identify with his finished work on the cross and the victory they can share with him over death.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to move powerfully in Kitsai churches giving them supernatural power and love.
May they raise up disciplers who will disciple others in the ways of Jesus.
Pray for a spiritual revival in Oklahoma that will bless both the Native American and White communities.
