Festival for the Departed

Be sure to bring a gift for the family.A live pig will do nicely... Please Wait

These are our hosts, the family of the departed.

The water buffalo is a prized and pampered possession. It is never put to work in the fields.Some say the Torajan houses are really shaped like the buffalo's horns. This unsuspecting animal will be sacrificed by having his throat cut while the family watches. His blood will propel the departed to a better place in the next life.
