Woman out of his grave and walks after three years have passed away - January 27, 2016

For most, dig up the dead seems a disgusting, absurd and disrespectful question. Why they should remove the bodies of loved ones from their dwellings?
Only in Indonesia (especially in the town Toraja), a corpse is usually carried to his grave, but in Toraja, the corpse wakes leaving standing at his grave. (It's very rare that even this "activity" or tradition be continued)

Unearth the dead, the dress, "bathe" and stroll around the site; They can take standing or sitting. The purpose is to show that their relatives are alive still remembered with love and respect.
The body is awakened through black magic. This is done because in Toraja, tombs and / or cemeteries are located on limestone mountains.
The Dead walk on their own, and is guided by an expert in black magic. But this practice has a ban, the body should not be appointed or this fall and is not able to walk again.
This view is not shared by all regions of the world. Is this again, it's a tradition or was practiced thousands of years ago? What does it mean to these people take every certain period of time their dead?
The insusual ritual is held every three years, during Ma'nene Festival (means "ancestors" and "grandfathers") held on 23 August.
According to the beliefs of Toraja, the spirit of a dead person must return to his hometown. So if a person died on a trip, the family goes to the place of death and accompany the deceased back home by walking back to the village.
The Toraja are an Indonesian native tribe, who inhabit the island of Sulawesi.Tana Toraja (Land Toraja, where several villages of this ethnic group are grouped) has a natural protection formed by mountains and volcanoes.
Perhaps thanks to this insulation managed to survive one of its most ancient customs, funeral rites related.
This town, partly Christianized, who had to endure persecution by Dutch settlers, has a habit of burying their dead in "floating cemeteries" (after passing a mummification process involved in having the body in the home by about 3 days, which is still considered part of the living) located in the nearby mountains, burying the dead babies within trees, or just the dead adults, build them small traditional houses where they let them water, flowers or various taxes.
