The Dayak tribe enacting the war dance

At the Nemlai Ceremony in the village of Long Toyuq, the Dayak tribe enact the war like moves in a fun way to continue the centuries old tradition. This is usually done a couple of days before the actual ritual. I made this image on the riverside of this village during this time.
