Photographer's Note

These are our friends from highland of Papua, taken at a small village, about 10 km from Wamena, the capital of Jayawijaya Regency, Papua Province.

In Wamena, some of the local community are still wearing this traditional 'clothing' while some others already wear modern clothing. It is a 'unique' mixture of both.

Hunting for food is still part of their culture, but they also do some farming, growing sweet potatoes, taros, and a bit of vegetables. Pigs are also seen around their village.

PS: Too bad that we are recently hear a fight between tribes in Papua, but the fight is not at Jayawijaya highland.
