Tradition in a country where Western influence is strong

“Excited young minds” This pic is of my two young daughters who are dressed up in traditional costume, although it isn’t the full costume as we live in town - the thought of being dressed in traditional attire is just magical you can see the excitement and being proud of their culture. I say this because their every day lives are circled around the western influence, I only realized why they were very eager to wear so because - it has that wholesome feeling that we are Papua New Guinean even though we watch Disney cartoons or live in this digital era - our culture must be preserved well, to find our real identities as people of this world.
