Siwa Lima Pack

 

In the beginning the Moluccan people (Alifuru) lived as one tribe on the mountain called Nunusaku on the island of Ceram. Also known as Nusa Ina what means “Mother Island". The tribe was growing and growing and they started looking for new environments. So the tribe splitted up in two tribes called the Pata Siwa and the Pata Lima. The Pata Siwa moved to the west and the Pata Lima moved to the east.

The clothing and dance are inspired by the Alifuru people with their ritual dances called the Tjakalele....

MI meets Graphic designer Mr. Nature.

We asked Mr. Nature to design a poster for us. The theme was "Ale rasa beta rasa".
"Ale rasa beta rasa" is a Moluccan expression. It means literally "What you feel, I also feel". Also comparable as "You've got my back, I've got yours".
He works totally free hand and came up with a beautifull concept and result.
