DRESS UP: Celebration

Sulawesi Island tribe exhume and wash their relatives.

If you thought the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China was the most outrageous celebration, try travelling to Indonesia.

People in the Asian country miss their dead relatives so much, they dig them up, dress them up and then pose for pictures with the geraamtes.

The Torajan people proudly pose with their half-decayed relatives in an ancient ritual that is meant to show respect for their passed on relatives.

Every three years the Sulawesi Island tribe exhume and wash their relatives. They also dress them in nuwe klere and their favourite accessories, all this for a festival known as Ma’nene.
