Tribe History



Lumuwaku F5 Buff

A new Buff was issued on Day 36 for the final five survivors. It secretly contained a clue to a Hidden Immunity Idol.

  • The name for the tribe was originally suggested by Jack Nichting before his elimination, and was brought up again after the merge by Jamal Shipman and Janet Carbin, explaining that "LUMUWAKU" was an acronym that Jack's late father would tell his family before deployment.[2]
  • Lumuwaku was located at the former Vokai camp. The tribe later moved to the Island of the Idols.
    • Lumuwaku is the first merged tribe, as well as the third tribe overall, to have their campsite be relocated, following Koror in Palau and Manono in One World.
  • Lumuwaku is the first tribe to have a member get ejected from the game.
  • Lumuwaku is the first tribe to have their Buff switched out into a new color. At the final five, castaways dropped their blue buffs in favor of grey buffs with blue accents, to signify their new living space being the Island of the Idols. The season logo also differed on the new buff, which was secretly a clue to a Hidden Immunity Idol.
