Introduction / History

They primarily live by fishing and gathering food in this swampland near the coast. With their land at an altitude of less than 100 meters above sea level the Morori people in Wasur can best be accessed by bus or other vehicle using the road from Merauke. Their village of Wasur was moved in 1961.

The people eat fish and sago. The Morori people have no gospel cassettes, films or videos in their language. There is a church in Wasur.

The Morori are sometimes known as the Moraori, Moaraeri, Morari, Marori people. They prefer to be called Moraori. The Morori have regular contact with the Marind people and the Kanum, Ngkalmpw people.
