2012 Mt Hagen Cultural Show and Sing-sing
Every year in the month of August tribes in the highlands of Papua New Guinea gather peacefully to celebrate their ancestral traditions with singing and dancing in the Mt Hagen Show. It is one of the most extraordinary sights ever witnessed by international travelers.
Beneath an intense tropical sun and surrounded by jungle-clad mountains, over 2,000 tribesmen and women parade onto a sports field. Their bodies glistened with pig fat and their faces with red, black and yellow ochre. The men wear pig tusks through their noses and quills from the cassowary, a giant bird the size of an emu. They sport glittering head-dresses made from bird of paradise feathers, and round their waists they wear grass kilts, known somewhat cheekily in Papua New Guinea's Pidgin English as "arse-grass". This is the Mount Hagen Show, the premier tribal gatherings held annually in the Mt Hagen.
