The Wigmen of Tari, PNG
One of the more famous tribes of Papua New Guinea are the Huli "Wigmen" near the village of Tari. We visited the "Wig University" where men grew their wigs for attending ceremonies. We sat with the two "professors" of the university for quite awhile and learned much about their practices. Showing interest (which I truly was) was beneficial for getting them to open up and enjoy being together. We ended up having some fun and as the guys in back were smiling, the man in front was trying to hold a very serious pose. This was taken just before he cracked a huge smile.
