A note about the banner photo:  I took this photo in Sarawak, Malaysia, on the island of Borneo.  In it, female ritual specialists called dayung boris are taking a break from an agricultural ritual in which they swing back and forth on a wooden swing on the longhouse veranda, invoking the spirits to the ritual.
