North of Australia in the Pacific Ocean is the island of New Guinea. In the west is the capital city of Port Moresby. Papua New Guinea’s history includes headhunting, cannibalism, frequent earthquakes, active volcanoes and one WWII’s largest military campaigns. There are numerous tribes, ethnic groups and over 800 indigenous languages. Most people live in small villages and rely on primitive hunting, fishing and farming. Sea shells were the primary currency until around 1930. These girls had just performed a ritual dance called “sing sing.” Their paint and feathers represent local birds and animals.
