    I think its almost a crime how this woman’s deeds were forgotten for so much time. Its awesome that she is finally getting the respect she desserves.

    Great coverage and research, although the above is not of Batak attire. It is from Nias. She never went to the island of Nias though, she travelled from south towards the land of Mandailings and then to the land of Tobanese. Batak is not a tribe, but rather an old concept of nation, which consisted of a handful of highland tribes of Sumatra.
