[edit] Information

Unreported World visits a remote area of Madagascar where the dead make the rules. A set of taboos, handed down from long-dead ancestors, controls what you eat, when you work and every aspect of how you behave. Reporter Kiki King and director David Fuller visit the town of Mananjary, on the isolated east coast, to reveal how one taboo against twins leads to children being abandoned and mothers becoming outcasts. No one is sure how the taboo against twins, and the belief that they bring bad luck, arose, but most stories talk about an ancient battle that caused a tribe to flee their village. One mother forgot one of her twins and when the villagers returned to save it, they were all massacred. The tribe's elders then declared it taboo to raise twins.
