Remnant Of A Tribal Council
You are looking at the remnant of a tribal council,of the two castaway tribes, Pagong and Tagi of the Survivor Reality TV Show.

Pulau Tiga
The remote tropical island on which Survivor was contested. Three miles long by a mile wide, this island lies forty miles off shore,west of Kota Kinabalu, or 30 minutes boat ride from the nearest coastal town, Kuala Penyu. Kuala Penyu is about 90 minutes drive, southwest of Kota Kinabalu.

Pulau Tiga (Tiga Island) was founded just a century ago by an earthquake off the Philippines. Wildlife includes monitor lizards, yellow-lipped kraits, reticulated pythons, flying foxes, and Malaysian field rats. The rats are edible.

The tribal council, is a thatched wooden building, located midway, about a mile each way, between the Pagong and Tagi campsite. It was the forum for voting castaways off the island. One tribe attends every three days, with participation predicated upon losing an Immunity Challenge.
