Live together with the indigenous Mentawai Community and experience their lifestyle first-hand as you hunt, fish, make poisonous arrows, and take part in many other cultural activities together. You'll stay in a traditional 'Uma' alongside a local family and share in many daily activities together. The Mentawai people live on the island of Siberut – about 100 miles from Padang, the capital of West Sumatra – and can be reached by boat. They are the only animist community in Sumatra and believe that all things in nature possess a spiritual essence. They strive to live in harmony and peace with the nature around them.
