Cultural Clash (Papua, Indonesia)

Indonesian policeman at the Baliem Valley festival (Papua, Indonesia).
On every August or September in the Baliem Valley a festival is held.
The main point of interest is the massive tribal attraction involving different tribes living on the villages around Baliem Valley such as Dani, Lani and Yali tribe.
The festival is a right chance to observe the culture of a people living in Papua. A real paradise for photographers...

Great photo! The contrast in technology is quite interestingly offset by the sameness of their coloration of clothing and dress.
