We establish reflection positivity for Gibbs trace states defined by certain Hamiltonians that describe the interaction of Majoranas on a lattice. These Hamiltonians may include many-body interactions, as long as the signs of the associated coupling constants satisfy certain restrictions. We show that reflection positivity holds on an even sub-algebra of Majoranas.
