Tufi Warrior

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is another one of the Tufi Warriors that was part of the traditional dance show we were treated to after the Sago show and also after we had dried out a bit!

The colours in these headresses they achieve are mind boggling considering how primitive they are and how they can’t just walk down to the local fancy dress shop to shop for these get ups. They are all hand made from local produce and plants and are as they have done for hundreds if not thousands of years.

Somewhat humbling when you consider how relatively young our culture is.
