Introduction / History
The Doutai people are primarily fishermen and food-gatherers in the lowland river basin. The Doutai people can best be accessed by boat or plane. They are a semi-nomadic people and roam up to a 35 kilometer area.

An airstrip brought the Wari and Toli tribes together but hostilities have had a tendency to keep them apart. Dancing is a past-time of the Doutai people. They have been known to intermarry with the Wedi, Papasena, Kaiy, Sikari, Dabra, and Walibody tribes. Traditionally, the Doutai people let their dead disintegrate on a platform above ground.

The women take care of things at home, fish and gather food. The clothing people wear is often made from bark. The people eat sago and fish. The Doutai own and use knives and axes. Houses are usually built on platforms of bamboo and topped with palm fronds. The Doutai people identify themselves by tribe and clan. Local pastors and chiefs are looked up to as leaders. Conflicts are resolved by the chiefs or in fights. The Doutai people have no gospel cassette, films, or videos in their language.

The Doutai are sometimes known as the Taori-So, Taori, Or Tolitai people. They prefer to be called Toli-Tai. The Doutai language is part of the East Tarike language family.
