PNG River Warrior
The first festival I visited in Papua New Guinea was the Crocodile Festival located on the Sepik River. This was not planned on our trip, so was a wonderful surpise as the river tribes are very different than the mountain tribes of PNG. Different costumes, dances, etc. This gentlemen wore a hat from part of the Cassowary bird. All in all...wonderfully friendly people and seemed happy to be in the front of the camera.

This might be kind of an odd comment...but even with the fantastic headdress from the Cassowary bird, what rivets my attention the most to this impressive portrait, is the color rhyme between that forehead fur he is wearing, and the stains on his teeth! Is that from betel?
