We explore primitive tribes in the Baliem Valley, We stayed in Wamena for three days to observe the activities of the Baliem Valley Festival, The biggest highlight of which was the mock battles between the tribes. Each tribe has different status symbols with various clothing, headgears, colors painted on their bodies, etc. They send out the strongest warriors of their tribe to recreate the tribal fights of old, recreating scenes of battles over territory and wars over women. Back then, it was a battle to defend their village Now, it is performed to make people aware of their people.
