Idaksahak in Algeria

Idaksahak in Algeria

The Idaksahak ("Sons of Isaac") of Africa were formerly herders for Tuareg nobles. In return, the Tuareg protected the Idaksahak. Some Idaksahak migrated to sub-Saharan Africa between the eighth and ninth centuries and they were among the first Muslim groups in the area. Some experts consider the Idaksashak to be a Tuareg clan. Today, many Idaksahak are engaged in agriculture and live in one place. The frequent droughts of their Sahel desert homeland are a serious danger to Idaksahak herders and farmers. The vast majority of the Idaksahak live in Mali, while a much smaller group live in Algeria.

Ministry Obstacles

The Idaksahak have been Sunni Muslims are for over 1,000 years. Being Muslim is a part of their personal and group identity. There are few, if any, Idaksahak followers of Jesus, so they need to hear from those outside their community.

Outreach Ideas

The JESUS Film is available in Tuareg. Most Idaksahak men speak Tuareg.

Scripture Focus
