Mah Meri Tribe (pronounced as Mak Miri) is one of 19 Orang Asli (Indigenous) tribes in the Peninsula of Malaysia, who live in the Carey Island. They once shared the land with the Indians who were brought in to work in the plantations back in the early 1900s.
To have an insight into their animistic and superstitious beliefs and a close view of their beautiful handiwork plus a taste of their simple life, experience a guided tour of the Mah Meri villages. “Visitors don’t come here to be entertained but to learn about the Mah Meri culture,” says Orang Asli arts and craft researcher Rashid Esa.
Besides being an “Artisan Village” this place also showcase the tribe’s skill in traditional wood carving, mask carving, origami & pandan weaving. The main attraction of the village would be its exhibition of 11 internationally-recognised spiritual and animistic wooden sculptures.
