XV 80F // XV Papua New Guinea

Year: 2010

XV 80F - Goroka, Eastern Highlands - Papua New Guinea, 2010 The indigenous population of the world’s second largest island is one of the most heterogeneous in the world. The harsh terrain and historic inter-tribal warfare has led to village isolation and the proliferation of distinct languages. A number of different groups are scattered across the highland plateau. “Knowledge is only rumour until it is in the muscle” Life is simple in the highland villages. The residents have plenty of good food, close-knit families and a great respect for the wonders of nature. They survive by hunting, gathering plants and growing crops. Indigenous warfare is common and men go through great effort to impress the enemy with make-up and ornaments.
