Dani Tribe lives with the skeletons. Literally! Through smoke, they keep the mummies safe for hundreds of years. The tribes live in Papua west village.

They convert dead bodies into mummies and keep the mummies safe with them.

The smoking mummification is no longer practiced, but the Dani tribes people still preserve a number of mummies as a symbol of their highest respect for their ancestors

The tribes live in isolation, their activities are so different.
