Chiefs Dance

On the island of Pentecost in Vanuatu, South Pacific, chiefs from the small village of Baie Martellie dance Chris Kilham and his friends down from the hills to the sea. Chief Jean Paul on the right gave Chris his spear to dance with, a high honor. Chief Jean Paul has since passed away. Being part of this scene was an extraordinary experience.
