Introduction / History

The Zapotecs, the largest indigenous people group cluster of Mexico, live primarily in the southern state of Oaxaca. This people group, however, reaches across much of Mexico. San Pedro Quiatoni is one of the many Zapotec languages.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Many Zapotecs are among the poorest of Mexico’s citizens. The primary sources of income are farming and various crafts such as pottery and weaving. Some have migrated to the United States to earn a better living.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The primary religion practiced by the Mixtec peoples is a form of folk Catholicism. They revere Catholic saints, nature spirits and their ancestors, whom they believe are the guardians of Mixtec ways. They have regular fiestas to honor and revere their gods and patron saints.


What Are Their Needs?

All Zapotec subgroups need to put Jesus Christ first in their lives. As it stands, they hold onto many traditional beliefs that hinder their relationship with the loving Savior.


Prayer Points

Pray for audio helps such as gospel recordings, Christian radio and the JESUS Film in the San Pedro Quiatoni dialect.

Pray that they will allow Christ to set them free from paralyzing fear and bondage and make them alive in him.

Pray that soon there will be Zapotec disciples making other disciples for the glory of the Lord.
