When my hosts realised I'm their first guest from Poland (probably I was the first guy from Poland to reach this village) they invited locals to perform tribal dances for me. This man is performing warrior dance. The tribe is called Kelabit and they used to be headhunters. This dance was performed after killing an enemy and decapitating him.

You mean the long knife on the floor? Well, they were so friendly, I loved my stay there.

What a story! I wonder when they stopped headhunting? I like his mixture of clothing...tribal and Western!

In the first half of the 20th century, when christian missionaries arrived. I guess this guy's father could have hunted some man.
