The Gayo language, which is an Austronesian language, is spoken by a small number of 300,000 people, typically around the mountain region of Aceh. It is spoken in the Sumatra and Indonesian regions.
It is considered to be a Western Malayo-Polynesian branch of the Austronesian languages. However, it is not closely related to other languages within this family.
Within Gayo, there are multiple dialects such as Deret, Lues, Lut and Serbejadi-Lukupas. The first Gayo-Dutch dictionary was written in 1907 by G.A.J. Hazeu, who wrote it for the colonial authorities of the Dutch East Indies.
The language itself is written in a Latin script. The Gayo people are very close to the Muslim Aceh people.
The Gayo people’s main source of income is coffee. Typically, the Gayo people are very poor and uneducated. One of the biggest challenges they face is suicide, often due to hopelessness.
The Gayo people tend to be Muslims but do not often understand the main principles of the religion. The Gayo people believe in spirits, both good and bad. They offer sacrifices to spirits, to holy men and to their ancestors.
The Gayo was originally part of the Batak Karo people who lived in North Sumatra but broke away from them because they were Christian while the Gayo was Muslim.
