Mentawai Indigenous People of Siberut, Sumatra, Indonesia.
Magical and aromatic plants hanging from their long hair and
loincloths; and wearing rattan bracelets and ceremonial aprons fashioned
from pieces of red, white and black fabric, these shamans are ready to
invoke their tremendous powers. They dance, mimicking jungle animals
such as monkeys and crocodiles, to read the ancestral world and
communicate with the spirits.
