Mari-Mari Cultural Village
Why cultural village? The name itself sounds boring?
Hang on there, this is totally a different story!
Mari-Mari Cultural Village is located amidst a remote forest setting, which is 30 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Kota Kinabalu City. There are about 32 ethnics all around Sabah. Mari-Mari Cultural Village features 5 of the most unique and authentic ethnic tribes.
Brief introduction of the tribes:
Tribes - (Ethnic Uniqueness and Demonstration)
1. Kadazan, dusun - (Bamboo-cooking and brewing of tapai [traditional rice-wine])
2. Rungus - (Fire starting demonstration using bamboo)
3. Lundayeh - (Rope processing from tree barks)
4. Bajau - (The making of fishing net and extraction of pandan juice)
5. Murut - (Production of traditional tobacco, experience blowpipe shooting &tattoo making)
Mari-Mari is a Malay word that means “come”. Visitors would have a chance to witness the famously feared headhunter Murut tribe, rice-farmer Kadazan-Dusun, crocodile as guidance of Lundayeh tribe, longhouse residence Rungus and the so-called sea gypsy Bajau!
