Boy with gifts
One of the biggest yearly events on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu is the Circumcision Ceremony, where boys 7-12 become men. It's a ceremony that is attended by hundreds and starts in the morning and ends the following morning. Everyone is dressed, painted and excited for the event. We were lucky enough to attend a couple of these very special ceremonies.

Very nice shot of the young lad and with so much color.  I was there about 10 years ago and I hope that it stills remains as "native" as when I was there.  Fascinating place.    Great post!
