Dance of Life | Dengal Dance #7 by 


The Denggal dance is a special dance from Walsa tribe in Waris, part of Keerom district in Jayapura, Papua, Indonesia. This dance is performed before starting the process of making the sago flour.

The Walsa Tribe always performs The Danggal Dance accompanied by a song or the local call sanggal, the meaning is to celebrate and to communicate each other on the way to reach the celebration place.

A female dancer stands with paradise bird on her head. In former period, Walsa tribe didn’t know about sago flour. Oneday, a teenager dreamt and got vision from “Iwawa God” (the bird God) that there is a tree which can be processed as a meal
