Introduction / History

The Bekati Land Dayak is a people group that lives in northwestern Kalimantan in Indonesia.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Bekati Land Dyaks often grow rice on hillsides. Fishing and hunting supplement their diets, but farming is their main activity.

What Are Their Beliefs?

Though there is some Christian influence among them, the Land Dyaks mainly adhere to traditional ethnic religion.

What Are Their Needs?

The Bekati Land Dayak people are in danger of outsiders taking their land and destroying the environment. Their homeland can be a target for Indonesia’s Transmigrant policies which bring Javanese people to less populated places like Kalimantan.

Prayer Points

Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to disciple the Bekati Land Dyaks.
Pray for a hunger for truth and righteous spirituality among them.
