According to tradition the villages were founded due to consistent attacks by pirates. They moved inland onto the island seeking shelter. The moyangs protected them by covering their trails with spider webs and showed them location of the moyangs abode. So they build them rumah moyang or house of the moyang and latter build their dwelling homes near the site,  If you visit Carey Island today, you will see Sok Gre’ the sacred mountain towering above the island reach sharply to the clouds, catching the rain. It use to be the rice bowl of the island providing for raw materials for cultural and rituals events, herbs for healing and food.Once a watch tower for incoming enemies and housing  their ancestral spirits, it is now out of bounds to the islanders due to the activities not conducive to local traditions. Water flows down the hill from the sea in turn rises as tides filling the streams that feeds the inter tidal muddy  areas with vital nutrients  and, so that nature take nothing from the land without giving something back.And in the coastal swampland , up to their knees in mud, are the villagers and their children, collecting shellfish  for the much needed supplement for their diet.

As a Malaysian, I have so much to find out about my own country. This tour has provided me a chance to know more about the Mah Meri tribe. I get to experience their Ancestor Day, see how they do their prayers, watch them dance along their music, try on their traditional costumes, etc. Definitely an unforgettable trip.

Uncle Rashid was such a approachable and knowledgeable expert. I enjoyed immersing myself into the Mah Meri culture with crafts, dance, music, tradition, and local interaction. After all, money can't buy experience at Hari Moyang Festival!
