Pleasing the spirits of Sumatra's Batak People

The Batak are an ethic minority who have called Samosir Island in Lake Toba their home for generations.
Part of the Indonesian legacy inside a region of vast cultural prosperity and famous for its natural richness, the Batak culture is formed and preserved around Huta Siallagan, a village small in size but large in historical splendour.
Totems form an essential part in Batak culture, and to grasp the essence of its lineage, the stories and events that shaped this enclave in North Sumatra, guided tours give visitors that sense of belonging and understanding.
