4. The Huli Men Tribe

A warrior tribe, the Huli men still live in their old ways. Women are thought to sap a warrior's strength, so men live in separate houses from women and boy children are given to fathers' to raise at around 10 years old. All affairs between men and women occur in the garden constructed between the man and woman's house.

Their warrior paints change with the occasion, I captured a few.
