Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
The Sa'dan Toraja are an ethnic group who live primarily on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. This rigorous academic study by Michaela Budiman examines the deep cultural shifts among the Toraja during the last century through the lens of their most important ritual-funerals. This book specifically addresses the conversion of the Toraja from their indigenous religion, Aluk Todolo, to Christianity and how this shift is reflected in their contemporary funeral practices and understanding of both death and grief.
