Each home was built by descendants of the tribes they represent such as the ethnic tribes, namely the Bajau, Kadazan, Rungus, Muruts and others. Not only does this village portray these tribes through the architectural genius of their traditional houses, but also through a range of simulated lives of the olden epoch by the residents of the village. Acquaint ourselves with each tribe as they let us come into their house and their simple yet intricate lives. As we traverse the village, we will find demonstration huts along the main houses in which daily activities of old times come into life. For example, the making of blowpipe, starting a fire (from bamboo tree we will learn the steps of making fire without the help of a lighter), tattoo-making (and its symbolisms) and more.
