Introduction / History

There are very few people in this people group. Their language is endangered, meaning that most likely no one will be speaking it in 100 years. They are using other languages instead.

Where Are they Located?

The Masama Andio people live on one of the eastern peninsulas of Sulawesi, an Island in Indonesia.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Masama Andio people are having to adjust to the languages and customs of the peoples around them. This must have an effect on their sense of self-worth.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Like most peoples in Indonesia, the Masama Andio people are Sunni Muslims who include aspects of pre-Islamic religion with their belief system. On a day to day basis, their faith is in the spirit world.

What Are Their Needs?

There are no Christian resources in their language, so pray that someone will show them the way to the cross using a language that touches their hearts.
