ABOUT THIS TOOV

The Dani people in the Baliem Valley, Irian Jaya, have a special method of cooking pig.

They dig a hole and line it with leaves and grass. On the grass they put hot stones that have been lying in a fire for some time. They then put in the meat, sometimes packed in banana leaves and put some more stones on top of the meat. The pit is covered in grass to keep steam in. After a couple of hours, the pile is opened and the meat is ready to eat. It usually comes with sweet potato, banana and cassave.

This traditional feast meal should be eaten in the company of good friends, sharing lots of laughter, as papuas do.
