There are more than 50 million Native Americans in Latin America today.
In many countries, Indians make up a sizable minority of the population; in some countries (Guatemala, Ecuador, Bolivia, possibly Peru) they are in the majority.
Since these countries are all considered to be “Christian”, does that mean that the Indians have heard the Gospel? By no means! The numerous ethnic groups, or tribes, each speaks its own language. They live their lives within their own cultures, and any notion about Christianity gained from contact with Spaniards, typically has been well mixed with their native beliefs – our efforts are currently having a remarkable impact among many tribes!
