Bungee Jumping: An Ancient Spiritual Ritual of Pacific Islanders

These bungee jumpers are from Vanuatu, a republic consisting of multiple islands in the South Pacific. They are jumping in a spiritual ritual for a good harvest season.

This is what inspired modern bungee jumping. But this isn’t done with strong elastic cords, this is done with fragile vines tied to the ankles.
