The Dani People | Western New Guinea’s Most Popular Tribe

Until recently, the Dani tribe had a tradition which stated that when a woman lost a close relative, she cut off her own finger. It was seen as a sign of respect and love for the person. The woman on the picture had seven of her fingers cut off.
