Just like how Nigeria and Africa in general are blessed with lots of customs and traditions, the South American people also have their own with theirs being one of the most scariest tradition that I've ever seen.

In this article, I would be sharing with you guys a piece of information concerning how people in South America particularly people of the Yanomami tribe bury their dead.

The Yanomami tribe who are also known as Senema or Yanam are mostly found in parts of Brazil and Venezuela. The people of this tribe do not give much attention to modernization as they continue to practice and believe in their traditions and culture.

Instead of sending off the dead by giving them a befitting burial like we all know, the Yanomami people do theirs differently as they practice a ritual known as 'Endocannibalism'. For those who don't know what endocannibalism is, it's the practice whereby the flesh of a dead person is eaten by those who are from the same tribe or community.

The people of Yanomami tribe widely believe that the soul of a person needs to be protected even after death and they believe this is done when the body of the dead is burnt and eaten by his/her relatives who are still alive.

Unlike the normal burial ceremony that you and me know, this people set fire on the dead and allow it to burn, leaving them with bones which is then grounded till it gives them a powder solution which they would now mix with the ashes.

They use this powdered solution to then prepare banana soup, a local delicacy which is now given to the relative of the person to eat. They believe that the only way through which the soul of the dead can attain eternal peace is when this whole ritual is done.

Even though I have seen a lots of weird and strange traditions and beliefs, I think this is the first time that I would be hearing about this Yanomami tribe.
