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.
