Bangobango of the DRC

Pray for the Bangobango of the DRC

The Bangobango are likely the descendants of hunters, although they no longer carry out that skill. Today, the 319,000 Bangobango people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are subsistence farmers who raise animals. While the Bangobango primarily adhere to Islam, they also practice ancestor worship. They try to appease a supreme god, family spirits and other spirits serving as intermediaries between man and gods. Shrines are built to placate their family spirits, and diviners are used against evil spirits, whom they greatly fear. Recently, an orality project has begun among the Bangobango to translate stories from the Bible into their language.

Prayer Requests
