Visit the Katu tribe


They live in Southern Laos. They are mostly known for performing Buffalo sacrifices. The tribe are animists, which means that they have a religious belief that objects, places, and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence.

Another outstanding thing about them is that they like to prepare for their own funeral. They design their own coffins and store them in their houses until the need arises. They mostly grow rice, corn, and manioc. Women weave clothing and make pieces of jewelry from ivory for income.
