The Uape Indians' starnge custom.
First, do you know where the Uape Indians live?
Yes, you guessed it right! They live in the Amazon jungles. It is my dream place to visit mainly to see the much talked about rare birds.
These Uape Indians practice a strange custom. After they burn a human body, the collect the ash and mix it with a native beer made from cassava root and drink it.
This drink is said to be very potent.
The ash mixed drink is consumed by the dead's relatives while remembering his/her life deeds.
