Ma'nene in Toraja
Tulak (55) with her father, Dongga, who died in 2006 at age 78. She came from Malaysia and she was happy to see him.
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.
