Indonesian Traditions | Ma'nene - South Sulawesi

Giving respect to our ancestors could be delivered in various ways and the Torajans have a unique way to respect their ancestors with a ritual called “Ma’ nene,” where they cleaned and put clothes on the dead bodies that have been buried for ten to hundreds of years.

They believed that this ritual would bring prosperity to their village as in, they would easily capture animals, their crops would harvest well, and many more.

In history, a man called Pong Rumasek is believed to be the one who started this ritual. He was a hunter who was seeking animals to hunt in the middle of the woods near Balla mountain and found a dead body in quite disturbing conditions.
