Sea Gypsy weeding ceremony
Sea Gypsy

The first people of Koh Lanta as formal record are the sea gypsy which originally from the Nicobar island or Andaman Islands. The sea gypsies of former centuries were living on their boats and were feared as pirates. Now in Ban Sang Ga U on Koh Lanta is the village of this Sea Gypsy. Their lifestyle is already changed to the modern world but they still retain their own language, traditions and ceremonies. Their belief in supernatural and traditional spiritual worship is still influential in the community as seen in their traditional ceremony "Loy-Rua (Floating Boat)". The village men will build a symbolic boat and place wooden statues of themselves in it along with nail pairings, hair and popped rice. By performing this ritual, they ask for forgiveness from the sea gods and for any offences they have made to the sea. It is believed that all evil is carried away in the symbolic boat.
