Baduy Tribe

INDONESIA | Monday, 8 July 2013 | Views [448]

Baduy tribe is one of the tribes in Indonesia that still survive with their culture amid strong world

growth. They are the tribe that survived world apart from the convenience of modern living that

provides electrical, lighting, vehicles, television and other entertainments. Baduy stick with candles, bare

foot, go everywhere on foot and simplicity. They do everything as simple as possible to use everything

that is provided by nature such as food, clothing and others. Bedouins also believe many mystical

taboos. They are forbidden to kill, steal, lie, commite adultery, get drunk, eat food at night, wear flowers

or perfumes and other personal body cleaning (soap, toothpaste, shampoo). Accept gold or silver, touch

money or cut their hair.

Stay with them 2 days make me Realize how I'm used to busy with everything around me (technology,

modern) and never listening myself. See their face who live in harmony with nature and true being

honest as a person. Shy.  Simple.  Friendly.  And kind. Maybe we must learn a lot more from them. Learn

to live in harmony. Learn to respect mother earth. Learn to be simple.
