smoked guardians

Warning! Copypasta ahead. The people in Menyama smoke the bodies of their dead in order to preserve them, and then take the bodies up a very steep incline to a cliff. The bodies are placed in such a way that they look down the mountain and upon the village far below. They are protectors of the villagers below. Sometimes, the bodies will be brought down from the sides of the cliff for celebrations or other events. Otherwise, the warriors stand guard and watch over their loved ones. http://www.viralnova.com/smoked-bodies-papua-new-guinea/
