Introduction / History

The Warembori people maintain their livelihood by swidden agricultural, hunting, gardening, fishing and crabbing along the rivers and marshlands of their coastal region. The Warembori people can most easily be accessed from Serui by a 7-8 hour boat trip.

The Arupi clan of the Warembori moved south in 1988 and intermarry with the people of Kaipuri. The Warembori people enjoy dances and song cycles.

The peoples' main diet is sago, fish, and yams. Houses are generally along the coast on stilts. The Warembori people have no gospel cassettes, films, nor videos in their language.

The Warembori are sometimes known as the Warenbori, Waremboivoro, or Warabori people but they prefer to be called Warabori. Warembori is the main language at home.
