  Buffalo fight at Taluang Lipu, Tana Toraja
by radin

Traditional buffalo fight or Tedong Ma'pasilaga in Torajan language are held during the Rambu Solok ceremonies. The Rambu Solok ceremony are the most waiting event to all tourist that came to Tana Toraja but sometimes their too focus watching the ceremony inside the village and missed to see the traditional buffalo fight that held in the paddy field near the village. The most interesting in this traditional buffalo fight is how Toraja indigenious people yelling and screaming in purpose to give spirit to the buffalo. No buffalo will die or executed in this fight, cause after one of the buffalo runs the fight was over and they will perform in others ceremonies as the star..!!.
