Ok, let's try again since this photo got censured today. Thanks for all the lovely comments below the first post. We're mesmerised by the story of the Selk'nam too. WHO ⦾ The Selk'nam The Selk'nam are an indigenous people in the Patagonian region of southern Argentina and Chile. Anthropologists round 1920 have collected information about Selk'nam religion and traditions while trying to help them preserve their culture. The Selk'nam are considered extinct as a tribe. Selk'nam male initiation ceremonies was called 'Hain'. Young males were called to a dark hut. There they would be attacked by "spirits", who were people dressed as supernatural beings. The children were taught to believe in and fear these spirits at childhood and were threatened by them in case they misbehaved. Their task in this rite of passage was to unmask the spirits; when the boys saw that the spirits were human, they were told a story of world creation related to the sun and moon. Supposedly the women of the tribe did not know the spirits weren't real. The last 'Hain' was held in and photographed on one of the missions in the early 20th century. The photos show the "spirit" costumes they created and wore.

Vid by @eurosaurus Lyrics by The Bee Gees… "Smile an everlasting smile A smile can bring you near to me Don't ever let me find you gone 'Cause that would bring a tear to me This world has lost it's glory Let's start a brand new story Now my love, right now There'll be no other time And I can show you how, my love Talk in everlasting words And dedicate them all to me And I will give you all my life I'm here if you should call to me You think that I don't even mean A single word I say It's only words, and words are all I have To take your heart away You think that I don't even mean A single word I say It's only words, and words are all I have To take your heart away It's only words, and words are all I have To take your heart away It's only words, and words are all I have To take your heart away"
