Tana Toraja (Indonesia). 'Life revolves around death in this countryside  of rice terraces, boat-shaped roofs  and doe-eyed buffalo. Tana Torajan funeral  ceremonies last days, and involve  countless animal sacrifices for the upper  classes. The festivities start with bet-heavy  bullfights then lead into days of prayer, feasting  and dances.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/indonesia/sulawesi/tana-toraja

If you thought that zombies were only a figment of the imagination of storytellers, well, prepare to have your mind blown. If the rituals of the villagers of Toraja, Indonesia, are to be believed, almost every person who dies can turn into a zombie. Apparently, certain people of the village had and still have the ability to make dead people walk. And I don’t mean that metaphorically.

Tana Toraja, Indonesia. The smallest of the Toraja burial grounds are the “Baby Trees” where the tribe’s young are placed. If a child dies before he has started teething, its mother wraps his body in cloth, makes a another hole in the Baby Tree and places the dead infant inside. The hole is then sealed and as the tree begins to heal, the child is believed to be absorbed.
