Mock head-hunt and dance, girls' dance. "Later, a first group of dancers arrived, very well attired and most colourful. They insisted on waiting for all the other dancers and soon I understood why— the dance started with a mock headhunting, and a lot of guns were let off. Dance and song, recorded and filmed, were very fine. When the men had finished, a group of girls started. They danced in a line going forward and backward, without any variation." (From the field notes of Christoph von Furer-Haimendorf, Date: 1970-09-07)
