Chief of tribe
Mentawai (also known as Mentawei and Mentawi) people are the native people of the Mentawai Islands, in Siberut, about 100 miles from West Sumatra province, Indonesia. They live a semi-nomadic hunter-gathererlifestyle in the coastal and rainforest environments of the islands and are also one of the oldest tribes in Indonesia. The Mentawai population is estimated to be about 64,000.
Between February 2014 and October 2015 I traveled the world continuously without going home. At the end of the trip I published my first book, Walking Around, written in Portuguese, and since then I have been working as a travel leader and photographer.
