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.

    It was a very unique opportunity to be able to witness this important event in the Mah Meri calendar. Such a visceral event. The hospitality was warm and very inclusive and the lunch which includes a vegetarian option very tasty. Our host provided some excellent insight but the large crowd may mean having to turn up the volume more on the mic as it was hard to hear, Also the event grows in popularity some crowd control may be needed in order to ensure everyone gets a chance to witness the various rituals and take photos that aren't photobombed by other attendees. Looking forward to coming back to the cultural centre to visit the museum and other things I missed on this occasion.

    An wonderful experience to participate The Mah Meri Puja Pantai Festival. This was my first experience to know about the culture of orang Asli in west Malaysia. I was really touching. Thanks a lot for organizing this amazing culture trip. It will great to emphasis to respect the local custom, particularly when praying on the beaches as I believe a lots of people not really know not to block the view from the nenek moyang.
