Video of Manokwari Cultural Carnival

The following is the Cultural Carnival video in Manokwari of Papua which I captured using my mobile phone on 6 February 2010. The Papuan women, wearing rumbai-rumbai skirt accompanied by tifa (drum) players performed traditional dance on Merdeka street (formerly known during the Dutch era as Fanindiweg). This event was carried out to celebrate the Gospel Preaching Day on 5 February.
During the cultural carnival tens (or even hundreds) of thousands of people from Papuan cities, towns and villages gathered along the main streets of Manokwari city to participate or to watch the carnival.
