The Ma’nene culture of Indonesia where they dig up the dead from their grave to celebrate them yearly

Published

on

Ok, It is true that letting go of a loved ones can be truly almost impossible especially when death takes them away physically. But what can you do when Death is a natural phenomenon?

However, this does not really apply to the small island of the Toraja people of indonesia who practice the ma’nene ritual, which is the digging up of their dead ones from their graves and celebrating them once in a year. There are fascinating photos of families and their dead one which shows the depth at which they keep their cultural practices.

Before their dead ones are buried at first, most times their bodies are kept for weeks, months, or even years depending on how rich the families are. So the richest of families keep the bodies of their dead ones for years, which they clean, feed and clothe them continually until they are buried, but only to be dug out again once in every year. Sounds weird right? So they are dug out to be cleaned, redressed, fed, and new coffins are made for them. They are actually kept at a place called the house of death, but that is during their death before the first burial which takes weeks, months, or years.

Although Indonesia is known to be a Muslim country, but the Toraja people are mostly Christians. Which does not stop them from practicing the ma’nene culture, even though the church has tried to stop them from engaging in such rituals.

Here are some pictures from the Ma’nene rituals of digging up the dead.

So what do you think about this culture?

Mere Anyi Ebere

“Mere anyi ebere”, an outcry for God’s unfailing mercy has been released by Sister Elizabeth Ndubisi Eromosele.

The song is based on the Bible passage that it’s by God’s mercy that we are not consumed, his compassion never fails. The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.

Indeed, his mercies never end. They are new every morning.

It encourages us to approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. This is a time of need.

According to Sister Elizabeth, “this song was born in my heart years ago but began to burn during the lockdown when I felt in my spirit that we are entering trying times and will need God to intervene on our behalf more than ever.”

Sister Elizabeth Ndubisi Eromosele, fondly called Aunty Lizzy, gave her life to Christ in her teenage years at FGGC Bida and believes worship is a secret to a close walk with God.
She always loved singing and worship but only when alone. She shied away from singing in the choir. Sister Elizabeth is a CEM Trained Child Evangelist. She is an optometrist from the University of Benin, an author of children educational and religious books and school administrator.

Sister Elizabeth’s worship songs are from a product of deep intimacy, fellowship and seeking after God, as it is evident in this new single.

It is the craving of a worshipper for deeper measures of the Holy Spirit and greater manifestations of His dimensions.

Sister Elizabeth serves as a children minister at a Centre of The Covenant Nation in Lagos Nigeria.

She is a lover of God, a worshipper songwriter and happily married to Elvis Eromosele. They have four amazing children, Jed, Jane, Jeffrey and Jessie.

“Mere anyi ebere” is available for download/streaming:
