Papua New Guinea

Photo Caption: In Papua New Guinea, as in many parts of the Pacific, bird feathers are collected to make headdresses and in places were even exchanged as currency. This wonderful man in Deka Deka village on Ferguson island displays a mixture or the local eclectus parrot and what appear to be chicken feathers. As some local birds become more scarce people adapt often with the materials at hand.
