Toprak Dalışı - Land Divers - Land Diving Ritüeli Belgesel



Güney Pasifik ortasında küçük bir ada ülkesi yaşayan erkekler Toprak Dalış adlı bir yıllık hasat ritüel gerçekleşir.
Nisan veya Mayıs civarında, köylerde 100 metre veya daha fazla yüksekliğe ulaşan ham ahşap kule inşa edecek. Kule tamamlandıktan sonra, bir kaç erkek ölçeklemek için gönüllü  olacaktır. Erkekler daha sonra kule bir platform üzerinde ve daha sonra ayak bilekleri civarında ilk bir asma dalı bağlayacak. Ve kendilerini aşağıya bırakacak, Toprak Dalışı yapacaklar

 










Bungee jumping is for wusses… at least compared to the men who live in Vanuatu, a small island nation in the middle of the South Pacific. Here the men take place in a yearly harvest ritual called Land Diving.

Around April or May, villages will build crude wooden towers reaching heights of 100 feet or more. After the tower is completed, a few men will volunteer to scale it. The men then tie a vine first on a platform on the tower and then around their ankles. Summoning all the courage they have, the men dive from the platform headfirst. The divers reach speeds of 45 miles an hour as they plummet to the ground.

The goal of the jump is to land close enough to the ground that the diver’s shoulders touch the ground. Any miscalculation on the length of the vine means either serious injury or death.

Land diving among the Vanuatus goes back nearly 15 centuries. The purpose of the ritual is twofold. First, it’s performed as a sacrifice to their gods to ensure a bountiful yam crop. Second, it serves as a rite of passage to initiate the tribe’s boys into manhood. Boys as young as five years old will take part in the ritual which is often preceded by circumcision. The boys start out jumping low, but will work their way up as they get older. The higher a man goes, the manlier he is considered by the tribe.
