Minangkabau-Rejang of Sumatra Cluster – Profile
  • The Minangkabau people are one of the largest groups in Indonesia, living largely in West Sumatra Province. However, they are widely scattered in Indonesia, as well. They are well known for their tradition of leaving their home village and working in other areas to find their fortune.
  • Their culture has been matrilineal, with the family name and family wealth being inherited by the daughter. However this practice is changing to the more customary practice of the husband and father leading the household.
  • In education and business, the Minangkabau are relatively better off than other ethnic groups in Indonesia.
  • Most Minangkabau are orthodox Muslims. Minangkabau who leave Islam are disowned by their family and neighborhood and lose their job.
  • The Rejang, also in this cluster, live primarily in the province of Bengkulu. Their villages are quite orderly and neat.
  • The majority of the Rejang profess Islam. However, animism is an integral part of their daily life and beliefs. For example, a spirit called masumai is believed to be able to take the form of a tiger or a man and is the most frightening of all creatures for the Rejang. They believe strongly in the unseen world.
