Mentawai Indigenous People of Siberut, Sumatra, Indonesia.
Children are sacred to the Mentawai. They believe that a child is the
best gift a couple can ever receive. Fathers spend as much time with
their children as mothers do. When I told them that in some countries
some fathers could not spend more than thirty minutes a day with their
children, they replied that they would never want to trade places, not
for all the goods and money in the world.
