25 crocodile Fes­ti­val

Paradise - - Traveller | Our Country -

Held an­nu­ally at Am­bunti, this fer­stivsl brings Sepik River com­mu­ni­ties to­gether to celebrate the cul­tural sig­nif­i­cance of the crocodile. There’s danc­ing and sing­ing, as well as vil­lagers with croc­o­diles. You’ll also see men with crocodile scar­i­fi­ca­tion, where their skin has been cut so that the scars re­sem­ble the back of a crocodile. The fes­ti­val is on Au­gust 5–7.
