In pictures: Papua gets connected
Major event

Cooking the pigs means heating up hundreds of stones with a large fire, then transferring them to pits dug into the ground.

Men kill the pigs with traditional arrows, then carry them to the pits where women wrap the meat in leaves and cover them with vegetables. Earth is then packed on top and the meal left to cook.

A pig roast is a major event for the community. Around 2,000 people turned up for this one.
