Brief Profile

The Chiltepec Chinantec are an indigenous group who have migrated from Mexico and who maintain their pre-Spanish conquest language and culture. Their primary languages are Spanish and Chiltepec Chinantec, and children in the public school system in the USA are frequently bi or tri lingual.

The primary religion practiced by the Chiltepec Chinantec is a form of Cultural Catholicism layered over their traditional religion, and is rooted in the reverence of santos, their ancestors, and spirits in nature. Their religion is expressed through traditional fiestas, rites, and customs.

Prayer Points

  • Pray that the barriers of traditional Chinantec religion would be broken down.
  • Pray for more workers for the harvest, both for the Chiltepec Chinantec in the United States, as well as those in Mexico.
