P8245274 Tubuan procession on a village track

Tubuans gathering for an initiation into the secret men's society at a village near Rabaul. Despite sustained efforts over the best part of a century to wipe it out, the Tubuan Society survived in most areas, and today Tubuans are called upon to officiate on all sorts of occasions, including the opening of new Churches! While this procession is along a village track (get trackside with Kokopo Tours) Tubuans are very much part of daily life and you can see them prancing through town or along main roads at any time.
