The Son of Bajak Sorumut  by Joey L.

The Son of Bajak Sorumut

After a Mentawaian dies, the family will show tribute by carving the shape of their foot into a durian tree. The place is sacred and like a grave back home. The Sikeri believe that if someone were to break off the bark of the foot and bring it to the relative's house, that relative will certainly die. It is a great shame for an enemy to spoil the grave.
