Procession of Tuma  by Joey L.

Procession of Tuma

A woman of the Bodi tribe has fallen ill and died. The other woman of the tribe shout to the spirits and chant of her death to bring her soul to peace. The Bodi men perform ceremonial death procession and will keep the body of the woman safe for 3 days. After this, the tribe will gather together and eat the body as a sign of respect, and to ensure passing into the next world. The missionaries have failed to ban this practice.
