Men with guns wearing ceremonial dress in mock battle at Tang village, 1970.

Mock head-hunt and dance , girls dance. Later a first group of dancers arrived, - very well attired and most colourful. They insisted on waiting for all the other dancers and soon I understood why. For the dance started with a mock headhunting, - and a lot of guns were let off. Dance and song, - recorded and filmed, were very fine. When the men had finished a group of girls started. They danced in a line going forward and backward, - without any variation. Author: Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf, personal diary.
