Huli II

HOMAGE TO HUMANITY COMPANION APP
Huli II

With a population of around 250,000 in Hela province, the Huli community is the largest in the highlands. They are famous for their unique custom of wearing impressive wigs decorated with tropical feathers. 

"I want people to reflect on how they look at indigenous people, and themselves." - Mundiya Kepanga

In addition to these elaborate headdresses grown from their own hair, they wear bright facial paint in red, yellow and white – colours chosen to strike fear into their enemy in times of conflict. Nowadays, Huli men more often wear their traditional dress to sing and dance.
