Facing the island of Sumatra in the Indian Ocean lies an archipelago of islands called Mentawai, Indonesia. On one of these islands, Siberut, resides an ancient indigenous tribe that, even today, resists the onslaught of progress and time.


Together with my partner, in May 2018, I lived with them for a period, trying to gently immerse myself in their culture to deeply understand their habits, thoughts, and way of life.


Thus, emerged this video/photographic reportage intended to showcase the authenticity of this population. It serves as a reminder of how even today, these communities stand as milestones, capable of being influenced and shaped by progress yet remaining true to their core essence.
