This Tribe In Papua New Guinea Smokes Their Dead Love Ones As Sign Of Respect

Every country and every race has their own ways of funeral or burial.

What’s common to us might be seen as bizarre in other parts of the world.

In West Papua, an island in the center of Papua New Guinea, the Dani tribe has a very unusual way of remembering their dead.
For hundreds of years, rather than burying the dead, the Dani Tribe preserved their departed love ones by smoking their bodies.

They use a unique technique which allows them to preserve the corpses as mummies in a near perfect state.

However, the Dani’s secret mummification method is no longer in practice nowadays.

The mummies also serve as a tourist attraction, showing their bizarre tradition.
