Introduction / History

The Pai Tavytera are part of the Guarani linguistic family that used to be the dominant tribal group in much of Paraguay and neighboring countries. Due to the Spainards treatment of the Guarani tribe the tribe split up into a number of tribes similar in culture and language.

They live on government designated reservations and survive by growing gardens, working on neighboring ranches and do some hunting and gathering.


Where Are they Located?

The Pai Tavytera are located in Paraguay on the eastern side near the border of Brazil. The Kaiwa, or Kaiowa or Caiwa live on the Brazil side of the border.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Animists, in other words there are many spirits, the sun, animals, etc that control every aspect of life and must be manipulated through prayers and ceremonies.


What Are Their Needs?

There are a number of solid believers both on the Paraguay and Brazil side. The need is to see these believers equipped to reach there own people in a culturally relevant way.
