This ritual in is hard to find these days. It might hard to understand but this ritual or tradition was not only known in toraja. This ritual is not a
funeral, but to bring back dead person to her home to get change all the chlotes and will send back again to her funeral.
Her tomb not under the ground but high on the cliff with hole or small cave to put the coffin and dead body. The reason why this is so hard to find
these days, cuz this is a ritual for people with high status in society and rich too. This ritual will need lots of money. And the later generation
start left this culture that come from old tradition, they start to wish to have common funeral. Another reason is too hard to find someone who can
resurrect dead body, even if can find someone who can do this, they might not willing to do it, might cuz of commercial reason.
When a person resurrect a body like this, he must keep near to her and dont talk , no one allowed to call his name or the body will drop down.
Another ritual from this place is water buffalo fighting. People will gamble alot. There are another buffalo fighting , but the different, the buffalo
ve been cut the neck, almost off. Logicaly it must be already dead but using two people who can resurrect the body, both buffalo can stand and fight
until one of the guy cant resurrect it anymore.
This is the commercial reason i said before cuz this involved lots of money.
