The Lamahalot or Solor people are a traditional tribe located on Flores Island, Indonesia, and some smaller islands around it (Solor, Adonara, and Lomblen). Lamaholot people speak the Lamaholot language with different dialects, the number of speakers counts between 150,000 and 200,000. Those who live on mainland Flores can speak Bahasa Nagi (Larantuka Malay) as well.
Most Lamaholot people are Roman Catholics. Some of them are Muslims or devotees of a traditional monotheistic religion who believe in a god whom they call Lera Wulan Tanah Ekan (The combined power of the Sun, Moon, and Earth). Lamaholot traditional dance is known as Hedung.
