Dani warrior living in Wosilimo a little village in the Baliem Valley (Papua, Indonesia).
Dani are people from the central highlands of Papua, the Indonesian province of New Guinea. The Baliem Valley were only sighted in the summer of 1938 from an airplane. The red color of his teeth is caused by the habit of chewing the nut of a fruit growing in the area.
In the past some tribes would grind up chalk stones and paste this on their bodies as a form of decoration. Nowadays they often use toothpaste or paint.
