Warrior dance at Hornbill festival

The shot depicts the warrior dance festival of Konyak tribe during Hornbill festival. The Konyak tribe was once known to be "Head hunters" as they used to take off enemy's head after defeating them. Since the head hunting is banned nowadays, but the konyak are quite nostalgic about their glorious past.
