Awn-ma na-tah-kah Soul Walk
Be free, my brother. Walk among your ancestors and shed light upon this dark World.The Llantatu, a slave species of the Fear, have long believed that the souls of their dead walk among the stars, directing divine eyes to their plight. As such, they revere the spirits of the dead, and do everything they can to present them safe passage to the Celestial Seas.
For generations, the Llantatu allowed the spirit. Of the dead to rise freely to the stars by placing them on funerary platforms outside of their settlements. Now, they must retrieve their dead from under the ground, carry them to open fields at night, and hold the body aloft through the night. No matter the weather, this task must be done, or the spirit of the dead may perish before it can join its ancestors on the Celestial Sea. Throughout the night, the Spirit Guides chant ancient hymns and prayers, to keep themselves awake, and to protect the walking spirit. Before dawn breaks, the body is returned to it's grave and one last prayer is spoken tonthe departed spirit.
Spirit Guide The only members of the community present during a Spirit Walk are four chosen guides, who will assist the deads spirit out of the earth and to the stars.The four Llantatu chosen for this are normally brothers or close male relatives or friends. Rarely will a female Llantatu be chosen for the honor unless it is for a younger brother or sister.
Allowing a spirit to walk free can only be done after the Llantatu's master has buried them in the traditional funeral cairn. The night after, a select chosen from the community sneak away and uncover the body. In secret they perform the Anma Natakka, and them return the body to the cairn.
