Tubuan ashore in the Kinavai, National Mask & Warwagira Festival, 2013 P7179663


The first Tubuan ashore in the Kinavai to launch the 2013 National Mask and Warwagira Festival. Unfortunately, a breach of Tubuan protocol saw the ceremony truncated; a lesson, one hopes, to over-eager westerners who see Tubuan and other performances as simple theater put on for their benefit rather than the playing out of traditional ceremonies with deep spiritual and life meaning.  P7179663
