There is much diversity between the cultures in Papua New Guinea. For example there is the colourful Huli tribe who inhabit the southern highlands and Hela Province of Papua New Guinea. Colorful clay is used for traditional body decoration by the Huli's . In contrast the young men of the Sepik region undergo painful skin cutting on their backs. This is a symbol of strength and power to resemble the much worshiped water spirit (crocodiles) of the Sepik.
The cultural shows and festivals of Papua New Guinea are a way for the proud local people to showcase their traditional customs and beliefs through dance and "sing sings". This also provides a wonderful opportunity for tourists to see the many different cultures of Papua New Guinea all come together in an array of colour and passion.
