1. Living With the Dead in Indonesia
In the mountainous villages of South Sulawesi, Indonesia, the Torajan people have been living with the dead for centuries. This tradition has been carried until now.
According to their belief, in order for their dead loved ones to reach the afterlife known as “Puya” or “The Land of Souls”, their corpses must be returned to the place of their birth for burial. This journey from death to ritual takes a long time and even years.
