LokaLocal is the official partner of Mah Meri Cultural Village.
For centuries, the Mah Meri tribe in Kampong Sungai Bumbun, Carey Island celebrate their annual Hari Moyang, or Ancestors' Day. Now they are welcoming us into their community to witness their ancient rituals and well-preserved tradition of appeasing the ancestral spirits.
On the eve of Hari Moyang, families within the small community perform the Sanggar ritual to remember and honour their ancestral spirits. On the day itself, they would gather at the Moyang shrines to give their offerings, perform special prayers and receive blessings from the village shaman. Traditional songs and dances will be performed. This year, you have the chance to make Bunga Moyang as an offering. After the ceremony, the tribe and guests will head to the cultural village for a traditional lunch. It's a cultural experience you wouldn't find elsewhere!
Note: Transportation can be arranged on a first come, first served basis. Please indicate if needed, otherwise you can drive there on your own.
