Tiwah...



Tiwah is a rare traditional ritual of Dayak tribe in Borneo to send the soul of dead person to heaven. In Dayak Ngaju belief, the death is a commencement of a long journey to the Lewu Tatu (Heaven). The soul of the dead stays around one's living area until the family performs this ritual. The substance of this ritual is the respect to ancestor and elder person. This is also a very long exotic ritual, rich with natural wisdom.
