  • A young Minahasan cakalele warrior
  • The sign says it all

A Minahasan warrior is decorated with skeletons of wildlife species . He was performing a Cakalele or Kawasaran, a traditional war dance of the Minahasans. It is now a welcome dance to the VIPs.

    Very intense shot, wonderful portrait. Looks as though he has something in his lip. I assume headhunting is no longer part of their rituals

    Hi David (http://jpgmag.com/people/deej12). Headhunting has ceased from the region since hundreds years ago. Biting the lower lip and bulging eyes indicate that he is angry and brave or in a high spirit.
