At more than 2,500 metres above sea level, it took until 1930's for the outside world to discover Enga Province.
With just a generation between now and “first contact”, traditional lifestyles, customs and rituals are still practiced today in everyday life.
WELCOME from the Enga Cultural Show Organising Committee
"As Chairwoman of the Enga Cultural Show Management Committee since its inception in 1994, I would like you welcome you to Enga Province and to the Enga Cultural Show."
"With indigenous cultures and traditions across Papua New Guinea and the world are rapidly disappearing, the Enga Cultural Show was established as a way to preserve traditional cultural knowledge and expressions, encouraging Engan people, both young and old, to continue to value, practice, preserve and uphold their traditional culture.
It has been enormously rewarding to lead the dedicated team of people who have worked tirelessly over the years to establish the Enga Cultural Show to what it is today - the biggest annual event in Enga, of great significance to our people and now a major drawcard for visitors to our Province."
is a rare, ancient stone sculpture, created at least 3,500 years ago in Ambum, Enga Province, Papua New Guinea.
Who carved it and for what original purpose is a long lost secret.
Thousands of people attend the Enga Cultural Show each year, but only a handful of these are outsiders.
The locals love their show but it's still relatively
“undiscovered” by tourists, who are always warmly received.
