        Where boys become crocodile men

        男孩進行“鱷魚”成人禮的地方

        When does a teenager become an adult? In many countries, it happens on your 18th birthday, but in some parts of the world, you have to do something special to enter the world of adults.

        什么時候才算成年?在很多國家,這發生在你18歲生日的時候,但是在世界上的有一些地區,你需要做一些特別的事情才能進入到成年人的世界。


        On the island of Papua New Guinea, the Niowra tribe lives near the Sepik River, which is full of crocodiles. The people believe that crocodiles made the Earth and its people. When it is time for teenage boys to become men, a 'crocodile ceremony' takes place.

        在巴布亞新幾內島上,有個瑙拉部落住在賽匹克河畔,那里有很多鱷魚。人們相信是鱷魚創造了大地也造就了人類。當男孩到了成人的年紀,這時候就會舉行一個“鱷魚”儀式。


        The boys are taken to a hut called 'The Crocodile Nest'. The hut is full of crocodile teeth and skulls. The boys are told to think of their crocodile 'fathers and mothers' to help them to be strong and brave. Then they are beaten several times a day for six weeks and bamboo is used to make cuts on their chests and their backs. The boys play the drums together during their time in the hut-this helps them to feel that they not alone. The Niowra believe that this ceremony makes the boys stronger and braver, so that they can survive in the dangerous forest. They also say that the boys don't feel the pain if they believe in their crocodile 'fathers and mothers'. And the amazing thing is that some of the boys sleep through the most painful parts of the ceremony!

        男孩兒們被帶到一個叫做“鱷魚巢”的小木屋。小木屋里都是鱷魚牙和頭蓋骨。這些男孩兒被告知要想一想他們的鱷魚“父母”,這樣會幫助他們變得堅強和勇敢。然后長達六周,他們一天被打若干次,竹子被用來在他們的胸部和背部留下傷痕。在小木屋的這段時間,男孩兒們一起打鼓,這樣能幫助他們感覺自己不孤獨。瑙拉人相信這個儀式可以使男孩兒們更加強壯和勇敢,因此他們才能在危險的森林中幸存下來。瑙拉人還說到男孩們如果能相信鱷魚“父母”的存在的話,他們就不會感覺到疼痛。更驚奇的事是,有一些男孩兒在這個儀式最痛苦的部分中還可以睡著!


        When the ceremony is over, there is singing and dancing and the crocodile men are given adult responsibilities in the village.

        儀式結束后,大家載歌載舞,“鱷魚”男人們在村落中被賦予成人的責任。
