Traditional Dances – stamps from Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is a land of rich and extraordinary diversity of cultural heritage and new discoveries. In the land where no native written word exists and more than 700 spoken languages are spread, song and dance are one of the most popular forms of education. Each dance or sing-sing has a special meaning. Sometimes it's a way to say "hello" and "welcome." At other times, the ceremonial dance signals a hunting or war victory. Traditional celebrations include song, dance, feasting and gift-giving.

The stamps issued by the PNG Post are dedicated to the traditional dances.
