Certain people of the Village Tana Toraja in Indonesia have the ability to raise the dead and walk them to their grave as a funeral ritual. Almost every person who dies becomes a zombie for a short period of time (except those who cant afford funeral costs) The ritual is known as Rolang which translates to “The Corpse Who Stands Up”
There is no video proof so its hard to believe some of this, like the fact that during the funeral some people sacrifice a cattle and have it “walk” after its head has been decapitated.
n the ancient past, it was believed that a dead man must be buried in his village of origin, and not at the place of his death. Since villages then were far apart and extremely isolated, it was difficult for family members to carry the corpse through long distances. The help of people who could make the dead walk was sought, and the dead man would be able to walk back to the village where he was born. Kind of like a mobile service for the dead, I suppose. So in those days, it was not uncommon to find a stiff, expressionless corpse, walking straight ahead. And it is said that if anyone addressed the corpse directly, it would simply collapse, unable to continue the journey.
In the picture above it looks as if though the lady holding the plant is the one who is “walking” the corpse to it’s resting place, hopefully for the last time. Zombies freak me the fuck out.
I posted this a while back, re-posted because someone asked. This isn’t the actual story if I’m correct, a good one, but not the truth. I think theyre changing the body’s clothes. Correct me if im wrong
The sheep had drowned while trying to cross a small canal in the meadow-swamp ‘Tøndermasken’ in southern Jylland in Denmark. Birds had eaten every part above the surface and everything under was left totally untouched. from the National Geographic Photo Contest 2012.
