Aluk To Dolo Indonesia - - - - 1998 Gall, Timothy L. (ed). Worldmark Encyclopedia of Culture & Daily Life: Vol. 3 - Asia & Oceania. Cleveland, OH: Eastword Publications Development (1998); pg. 300. "Hinduism (3% of the population) in Indonesia means almost exclusively the religion of Bali, which is not a direct transplant of Indian religion but rather a synthesis of indigenous and Indian elements. In addition, some ethnic groups have succeeded in legitimizing their own animist religions by having them reclassified as 'Hinduism,' e.g., the Aluk To Dolo of the Sa'dan Toraja, and the Kaharingan of the Dayak. "

"Sa'dan Toraja: Location: Indonesia; Population: 330,000 "; "Since Indonesian independence, Christianity has grown rapidly among the Toraja, claiming 64% as Protestants and 12% as Catholics. The remaining population practices Aluk To Dolo, 'the Way of the Ancestors.' Before the 20th century, the Toraja had no separate word for 'religion,' aluk meaning the totality of the correct ways of behaving and working, including those which outsiders would consider 'secular.' The Indonesian state tolerates Aluk To Dolo as a 'variant of Hinduism, one of the recognized five religions under Pancasila. "

"Amahuacas: Location: Peru (Amazon river basin area); Language: Panoan; Religion: Indigenous religion based on spirits, with possible Christian influence "; "Catholic missions have not been successful among many tribes in this area, including the Amahuacas. The Amahuacas were not only hostile to some of the raiding tribes, especially the Piros, the Cashibos, and the Shipibos, who at various times enslaved them, but also to White people... The Amahuacas are very isolated from mainstream Peruvian culture and do not participate in the holidays, whether religious or secular, of the majority of Peru's inhabitants. "
