The dancers are initiated men dancing all night before new initiates were taken into the spirit house the next morning. This was in the remote village of Yamok, a two hour walk through the jungle, after a dugout trip up the Sepik River. Initiations only occur once every ten years, and I had the good fortune to be invited as an outsider to witness this amazing event.
