In West Sumba the animal sacrifice takes place every day.
Chicken is a perfect medium, cheap and available everywhere on the island.
Skilled medicine man can read easy the devine sighs.
The communication with the ancestors during the funeral is important. The deceased may provide guidance for the living in the village.
The last will of leaving soul can be read from the guts of the slain animal.
Talking with spirits takes place in everyday life.
Old medicine man prays before killing the chicken.
