Diversity in unity: this is how we can sum up the sheer originality of the culture of Papua New Guinea.
Animism, the oldest religion in the world, is practised by the various tribes here. This worship of nature is also still practised today by a large part of the population, but some of its traditional aspects have had to be changed to adapt to the evolution of the world.
The ceremonies and costumes may still seem evil, bizarre, or even amusing for Westerners, but their goal is simply to transcribe Papuan philosophy, which seeks to connect the natural to the supernatural.
The tribes of Papua New Guinea have a unique and profound culture that shouldn't be neglected just because it is different from what we Westerners are used to.
