Balle’ graveyard (Panggala, Rindigallo)
Ne Duma Tata (husband) 90 years, waiting for his passed away wife to get back into the mausoleum. Ludia Rante Bua (right) died in 2010 - with about 70 years of age. Ludia Rante Bua's sister stands in the middle.
The tale behind the ritual of Ma'Nene. Mr. Pong Rumasek roams the hills of Toraja. He’s on the hunt. But instead of a nice catch, he encounters an abandoned corpse lying under a tree. He gently wraps the bones in his clothes and buries it. Just after this happening, he is being blessed with lifelong luck and wealth. The rumor about the lucky hunter started to spread. Ever since the Torajans believe that the spirits would reward them if they care about their ancestors well. Although, Panggala’s clans do it differently as neighboring villages like Baruppu or Sesean.
