Decked out in elaborate costumes, striking facial paint, and wigs of human hair, the men of the Huli tribe in the highlands of Papua New Guinea prepare for a sing-sing, an annual festival of clan pride. Together, the men preen, strut, shimmy, and shake their feathered costumes, mimicking the local birds of paradise.
