Sentani, Jubi – An isolated and nomadic tribe was discovered in Omon village, South Gresi district, Jayapura regency, a councillor said.

A member of the Jayapura Legislative Council, Matheys Lewerisa, said he found out about the tribe while conducting a working visit some time ago.
“When they are in the village, they mingle with the community village by building huts to live in, ” he said in his office on Tuesday (08/09/2015).

“It’s a sign for the local government to visit here more often and seriously develop the region including transportation access,” he said.

Oktofianus Samon, a resident said, the tribe in South Gresi South has been around for a long time. Their lives do not settle so it is difficult to be handled directly.
“Not only does the tribe live in South Gresi, they can move and live in Yapsi, Kemtuk Gresi, even in Lerehi,” he added. (Engel Wally)
