Chewa Tribe of Malawi:
Chewa festival

The Chewa are a Bantu people of central and southern Africa and the largest ethnic group in Malawi. Internationally, the Chewa are mainly known for their masks and their secret societies, called Nyau, as well as their agricultural techniques. They however have a more interesting ritual that some people may find disturbing. It is the custom of the people that when a tribe member dies, the body is taken to a sacred place where they cut the throat of the deceased open. The corpse is then cleaned by pouring water inside the dead body and squeezed through the stomach until water comes out clean. What is most shocking of this is that they use that same water to cook a meal for the whole tribe.

Chewa culture


Chewa people also have many rituals. However, one is very interesting and disturbing at the same time. When a tribe member dies, a body is taken to a sacred place where other members cut throat of the deceased open. After that, they clean the corpse by pouring water inside the dead body and squeez the stomach until water comes out clean. But wait, here’s the most interesting part – later they use that same water to cook a meal for the whole tribe.
