“While technically not on the actual roof of the house, this elderly woman attends to her rather comprehensive garden on the elevated plot next to her traditional home in the Bukchon neighborhood in Seoul. Considering the elevated price of produce this year, such a garden could provide considerable savings.” via Enderle Travelblog

Two spirits in the Venezuelan jungle

These are photos of tida wena or “twisted women”, transgender women of the Warao, indigenous people in a remote part of Venezuela.

Like other women, the tida wena tended to the home, cooked and cared for children and elders. They also participated in the harvest of important crops, like the ocumo chino, a starchy tuber. Historically, tida wena were sometimes the second or third wives of polygamous men.

They also occasionally performed the role of shaman — the Warao are deeply rooted in the shamanist tradition — and tida wena in particular are thought to possess two spirits, bringing them closer to the ancestor spirits that roam the jungle.

This dual-spirit identity of transgender people is common in some indigenous communities

Dos espíritus en la selva venezolana

Estas son fotos de las tida wena o “mujeres volteadas”, mujeres transgénero de les Warao, pueblo indígena de una región remota de Venezuela.

Al igual que el resto de mujeres, las tida wena cuidan de la casa, cocinan y cuidan a niñes y mayores. También participan en la recogida de importantes cosechas, como el ocumo chimo, un tubérculo almidonoso. Históricamente, las tida wena eran en ocasiones segundas o terceras esposas de los hombres polígamos.

También ejercían ocasionalmente el papel de chamán (les Warao están profundamente involucrades en la tradición chamanista) y de las tida wena en particular se cree que poseen dos espíritus, lo que las acerca más a los espíritus ancestrales que pueblan la jungla.

Esta identidad doble espíritu de las personas transgénero es común en algunas comunidades indígenas.
