RE: Levels of Pain - How they were measured!

in #steemstem5 years ago

Nice post. I saw a documentary on a tribe that had a ritual where the adolescent boys were turned into men. Part of this ritual was wearing gloves filled with angry bullet ants. The boys weren't allowed to show signs of agony or they were considered not to have passed the ritual. I can't imagine the horror.

Sort:  

Oh my goodness... that is indeed horrible. I really don't know the motive behind the bullet ant thingy. I guess they think the boys shouldn't express pain when they become men. So sad!

Thanks for reading!

Found it. They have to do it 20 times !! It's the Sateré Mawé tribe that does it.

It even scares me to watch, thank you so much for sharing!
