Huli Wigman - Papua New Guinea
Kaluli | Mount Bosavi, Southern Highlands province, The Highlands | Papua New Guinea, 2017
In the villages, Kaluli people live in longhouse communities. The longhouse is a wooden structure measuring around 40 by 10 metres, built on poles at the centre of the village. Approximately 15 families – up to 90 people – can live in a single longhouse. Nowadays, families are increasingly living in separate houses, using the longhouse for communal
purposes such as festivities and ceremonies.
