Summary
Creation myth, history, ritual, clan history, and religion in the Mahe Grove, Wai Brama, Flores, Eastern Indonesia. Filmmakers, E. Douglas Lewis and Patsy and Timothy Asch, filmed the people of Wai Brama in 1980 as they celebrated their rituals of origins. The film focuses on a small group of ritual leaders who struggle to hold the Celebration in the absence of the Source of the Domain, the ritual leader of the community, who died after initiating the rituals. Many of the important principles of order in the domain are manifested in the Celebration of Origins including those governing relations between men and women, human beings and the deity and spirits, and the clans and houses which constitute the domain
