People waiting the starting of the lewak tapo, 'splitting the coconut', ceremony in Redon Tena, Adonara, Indonesia. The ceremony was for a woman named Bano who was murdered years ago for reasons no one knows and for Asan Telan of Suku Muda who was swept off a truck by cashew branches and killed between Got Hitam and Got Putih, Adonara, on September 10, 2000. The ceremony is intended to query the ancestors in order to find out the cause of an unexpected death.
