Papua New Guinea: Nomination Time in the Southern Highlands. Spring 2007

The pictures in this gallery were taken in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea during the spectacular and colorful nomination ceremonies for candidates in the upcoming national election for parliament, mid year 2007. Other fascinating Southern Highland ceremonies, rituals and practices are also encountered such as the Compensation Ceremony, Mourning Ritual and Bride Price haggling. To share this amazing experience with me, please read my story about Nomination Time with the Warriors of the Highlands of Papua New Guinea
