Ma'nene in Toraja
Ludia Pindan (60) with her husband, Markus Tombang, who died in 2016 at age 64. They were married for over 43 years.
Ma'nene is a tradition that takes place in August after harvest where the bodies of the dead loved ones are exhumed to be cleaned, groomed and dressed. For most, it's a bittersweet moment, a chance to reunite and physically see and touch and reconnect with loved ones who had passed on.
