One by one, the Duk Duks came. by bobfoto

One by one, the Duk Duks came.

Many men entered the Duk Duk change-rooms and slowly one by one, the six Tumburans exited to acknowledge the initiated and then they retreated back into the secret woven palm leaf lair.

Again one would emerge and dance and slowly two would emerge and dance and then three and then the whole contingent.
Must be very interesting to watch

This is fascinating to me. How long does this ritual (ceremony? pardon my ignorance...) last?

@chris17 - it was amazeballs!

@jyokota - Thank you Junko, these guys are way cool!

@swilde - Thanks Sue, more to come.... just.

@fauxtography365 - it lasts as long as the Duk Duk keepers allow... this version was cut short and it was a weird climax to the performance. The Tumburan are very temperamental....

@grammyn @houdiniem - thankyouthankyouthankyou!
