Introduction / History

”Zambo” was a racial term referring to mixed-race peoples during the Spanish Empire. Information about people descended from the African Diaspora in Peru is under “Afro-Peruvians.”
The Afro-Peruvians (aka, Mulatto) are descended from African slaves brought to Peru by conquistadors. Between 1529 and 1537, Francisco Pizarro was given permission to bring 363 Africans to the colonized Peru. As time went on, these numbers increased. The last group of slaves was brought in 1850. Many of these slaves were forced to adopt Spanish culture through language, traditions, occupations and more. They became skilled in various crafts.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Many Zambo Mulatto have moved to areas such as Lima in pursuit of better work opportunities. Spanish is the dominant language. In 2009, the Peruvian government apologized to the Afro-Peruvians for the country’s history of slavery and present racial discrimination. On June 4th, Peru annually celebrates “Afro-Peruvian Day,” honoring the history and culture of the people group. In addition, Afro-Peruvian folk music has gained prominence in modern times.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Catholicism is currently the majority religion for the Afro-Peruvians. San Martin, an Afro-Peruvian, was proclaimed a saint for his believed ability to heal, levitate and communicate with animals. He is the patron saint of mixed-ethnicity people.


What Are Their Needs?

Like all peoples everywhere, the Zambo Mulatto need to put Jesus Christ first in their spiritual and economic lives.


Prayer Points

Pray for the Holy Spirit to revive their church, leading them to follow Christ faithfully and make active disciples.
Pray their fellowships would be centered on Christ and biblical truth.
Ask God to give them a spiritual hunger and a discernment that will protect them from spiritual counterfeits.
Ask the Lord of the harvest to send loving workers into His field, strengthening the faith of his people.
