Pig Feast

One of the main festivities in Dani's culture is the Pig Feast or "Bakar Batu", usually held for weddings, funerals or other important occasions.


The Dani people will stage a "mock battle", followed by ceremony at his family compound. They will have prepared a pig to be cooked in a traditional earth oven filled with stones that have been heated in an open fire.
