Asaro Mudmen- Goroka, EHP
Tribal folklore records that centuries ago the warriors of Asaro were defeated in a tribal fight "payback"raid, and, to make themselves look fierce in the process, covered their bodies with gray mud. According to legend, the ruse worked. Their enemies fled at the sight of these ghostly apparitions. The mud men will recreated the drama for you when you attend the 2012 Goroka Show.
Morobe Dancing Group
In Goroka Show you will also see hundreds of other tribal sing-sing groups showcasing their cultures and traditions such as this woman group from Morobe Province.

Past Clientele Testimonies for the Momase Region.

" I enjoyed the Aseki Kuku-Kuku people very much. This encounter was an experience I will never forget." - McCormack - Sydney, Australia.

"I very much enjoyed the trip to Wewak and the Sepik River area. Seeby was very helpful and it was so interesting to see how the river people live in comparison to the Highlands. A complete contrast in every way, including the weather (wow, very hot and humid), so I do feel that I have seen some of the most striking and vivid areas of PNG in the space of two short weeks." - Jane, Ireland.
