Most Rasawa people fish or gather from the forest in their coastland territory. At an altitude of less than 100 meters above sea level the Rasawa people can best be accessed by boat. It is a 6 hour boat trip from Serui Island and there is an inactive airstrip in Rasawa land.
The people eat mostly fish and sago. One positive feature in the area is the good water supply. The Rasawa people have no gospel cassettes, films, or videos in their language.
The Rasawa have regular contact with the Demisa people but the Rasawa people use Rasawa at home. The Rasawa language is part of the Awera language family.
