HomeBlogs Olilit Lama This historic village just 10 minutes or so from Saumlaki is the site
of the Tanimbars' first Catholic mission. The arrival of the
missionaries is commemorated with a funny little monument along the
beach, and there are plenty of other Catholic statues and grottoes
scattered around the village. Old traditions are also alive and well,
and Olilit Lama can be as good a place as any on Yamdena to see
traditional ikat cloth being woven.
