Asmat Woman and Children

We were visiting the Yahunyufri village in the Asmat region of Indonesia. After watching the mask dance were were allowed to wander around the village and interact with the people (most of whom spoke no English and many who had never seen westerners). I saw this woman witting on her house porch with some of her children. I established eye contact and received the OK to take a picture.
