American Rites of Passages Make Other Cultures Look Soft

The concept of the “Rite of Passage” is seen in all cultures. It’s a universal mark indicative of transitioning from adolescence to adulthood in order to be accepted in a social group. From Aborigines in Australia to New York, rite of passage is used to separate the men from the boys. Today we dig deep into some of the most horrific rites of passage in modern times and compare them to a range of rites in the US. None of them seem to rival “Hunger Games”, but they definitely are unique.

Deep in the Amazon, the Matis tribe transitions an adolescent boy into a hunting man through 3 stages of pain.

  • In order to enhance his senses and vision, they would take poison and pour it directly into the boys eyes.
  • Next, the boy is subjected to methodical whippings and beatings.
  • Finally, it’s time to induce nausea and diarrhea. This includes burning the skin and then being injected with a poison derived from frog toxin.

For some reason, I would rather drink Colt 45’s to create nausea than take some frog poison.
