See All Events ››

The story of Nihiwatu is a rare and fascinating tale that began as far back as when Sumba’s ancestors, the ‘marapu’ landed on its secluded beach centuries ago. Whilst beliefs relating to their powers may vary, their spirit has remained a benevolent force, protecting the way of Sumba life and in attracting significant custodians to ensure the spirit and stories of the Sumbanese people – past and present – carry on.
