Living with the ancestors In Melanesia the world of the ancestors and the world of the living is closely connected with each other. The ancestors are always present in this life and their influence is visible everywhere. The living have an ambivalent relationship to the ancestors: they mourn their deceased and honour their memory. But they also fear their ancestors. They are trying to appease them and keep them from exerting bad influence.
