What to expect

Oncy Oni member of the tribe will guide you through the forest where the Mentawais live, learn about their culture, traditions and way of living in the forest.

This tribe settled on the Mentawai Islands, Siberut, West Sumatra. Although modern traditions are currently weakening, the Mentawai Tribe still retain their traditions that existed since their ancestors. Some traditions and rituals look painful, such as the Kerik Gigi for women. The tribe has a unique tattoo tradition considered as the oldest tattoo in the world.

From hunting to fishing, you’ll learn all secrets about them. Explore and enjoy natural surroundings, jump in the river for a refresh, try local food and stay at a home stay with the locals. Unforgettable experience.
