Indonesia - Sulawesi - Tana Toraja. Balle’ graveyard (Panggala, Rindigallo)
Family is presenting Djim Sambara, who died 2 years ago when 90. He was honorably buried in his military uniform. As it is usual for Torajans to honor the death to bury them in the clothes they most liked.
After this day, Ma’Nene is officially coming to an end. At least for the municipality of Panggala. The families will soon start with the cultivation of new rice crops, the teens will go back studying in Makassar, and some will continue their work in the mines to earn money for the upcoming funerals. Deeply anchored in Torajan culture, the clan returns home to gather, this is the most important aspect of Ma’Nene.
