Aldo 10, Erpi 7, Rosie 7
Tana Toraja, Indonesia

Aldo and his friends had just spent the morning washing two of his family’s water buffalo in the river. When he turned eight, Aldo was given the responsibility of tending the two buffalo. Valued at close to $800 each, they represent more than one-third of his parents’ wealth. They will both be slaughtered at his uncle’s funeral in two months. The funeral is being delayed until the last rice-harvest ceremony is completed, so as not to mix the rites of life with those of death. Toraja
