Papua new guinea nude

Police said they were treating the torching as murder and preparing charges against those responsible.

In 2009, a young woman was stripped naked, gagged and burnt alive at the stake, also in Mount Hagen, in what was said to be a sorcery-related crime.

Finally we chose Upper Sepik which looked to be the best accessible destination. And still there are other, more promising localities for the next time!!! People have been changing – civilization comes everywhere. Some people have been dressed and those still naked are under a big pressure to get dressed, too. When people ask me about the best time to go to Papua I usually tell them the best time was yesterday, or the day before…

We didn´t have much money and other localities, although more promising, were too expensive. People of Upper Sepik usually wear nothing, men are naked, women use short skirts. People are oppressed by the government, churches, timber producing companies… All we can do now is to hope that our next expedition is not the last one.

In Papua you can still find absolutely primitive cultures whose development ended in the Neolithic period (younger Stone Age).

Most of these tribes live in the western part of the island, but surprisingly, new ones can be found in the most inaccessible parts of Papua New Guinea.
