Title:

Mentawai Indigenous People of Siberut, Sumatra, Indonesia.

Caption:

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.
