The island of Sumba is known for its intricate ikat fabrics, distinctive architecture and sculptured stone tombs. In many ways Sumba has resisted the advances of the modern age and is a fascinating island to explore. Several ancient tribal rites are best preserved in the region of Kodi in West Sumba. The culture here revolves around villages where ancestors are worshipped by extended families living in enormous clan houses with high-pitched thatch roofs. View more
