Papua Dani Tribe

A Dani tribe elder and kids of Obia Village, Papua Indonesia. The smoke in the ambience is from a nearby fire that is heading up stones to be used for cooking later on. Traditionally, boys and men wear a penis guard (named koteka). In modern times, the use of koteka is usually during festivals and ceremonies.

I was at the Baliem Valley Festival in August, it was great but the 2018 was the better one in terms of the show and performance.

I have only been to the festival once (in 2018). I thought they did similar performances every year. Do you attend the festival every year?
