Sumba Island, East Nusa Tenggara. Reda Mata follows a funeral in the Marapu tradition, one of the last surviving megalithic burial practices. The priests meet to discuss matters of the dead. Kids play the gong. Relatives bring buffalos to sacrifice. The deceased is put to rest in a large tomb, the gateway for the soul to enter the spirit realm.
