Introduction / History

Wikipedia describes the Komodo people as “extinct” because their language is all but dead.


Where Are they Located?

If they even exist any more, the Komodo people live on the Komodo Island in Indonesia.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Komodo Dragon is better known than the people they share an island with.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Komodo people are Sunni Muslims who believe the prophesies of Mohammed and agree to the basic tenets of Islam. However, as people living in rural Indonesia, they tend to add pre-Islamic beliefs to their form of Islam. They fear the spirit world, for example.


What Are Their Needs?

The Komodo people need to put their trust in Jesus Christ so they can be freed from fear. They need to allow Him to give them life to the full.
