Sumba is one of the few islands in Indonesia where a majority of the population still follow the ways of their ancestors. One gets the sense that time has passed this island by and that only now is it slowly being drawn into the present. Throughout the year the island is the site of many fascinating rituals, the most spectacularare the Pasola ceremonies that take place during the months of February and March at select locations along the west coast of the island.
