Belinda Mason


"Funeral Ceremony"
This young man is about to perform in a funeral ceremony in the remote community of Aurukun in Australia. This ceremony is called a "house opening". When a person dies, their house cannot be entered for one year. After the year has passed, the community has a ceremony to ask the spirit to leave the house and the grieving or "sorry time" can end. .
