Bali’s Deaf Villagers To Speak Sign Language

In the region of Bengkala (a small village named “Bengkala Deaf Village” within the jungles of Bali), there’s a recessive gene common among the residents that causes a higher rate of deafness. It’s been passed down through seven generations.

About 80% of the people know the sign language of Bengkala is called Kata Kolok. Sounds impressive.
