Discover Maubere culture East Timor

Maubere culture originates from the diverse Timorese culture. It is expressed through its diverse regional languages and dialects, material products and varied architectural forms. The Timorese are naturally Animistic and even Christians have not been completely converted. The oral tradition is full of myths and legends; it depicts the pre-colonial era and the development of ancient kingdoms. The primitive religion, engraved in the hearts of the people, is essentially superstitious: a mixture of fear and admiration for the spirits of the dead. It is a religion which is materialised by stones, animals, wells, rivers or objects endowed with mysterious or devilish powers. Locally, these are called luliks, meaning sacred and inviolable.
