  • Contemporary Tradition Asmat Culture, Part 1 "Who are the Asmat?" By: Julian Gomez period: 6, Culture and Geography Source: Mr. Ruben Meza, 2012
  • The Asmat are indigenous hunter gatherer culture in West Papua, Indonesia. 
  • West Papua is about 1/2 of a very large island just north of Australia in the South Pacific Ocean.
  • The traditional Asmat are one of the last hunter gatherer cultures in the world.
  • One traditional of the Asmat is the piercing of the septum of the nose.
  • Another tradition of the Asmat is painting the faces and body for both ceremony and war.  
  • Traditional Asmat culture is truly cool because they do interesting thing that the past ancestors have done. 
  • Sadly  though, deforestation, colonization, and assimilation are deeply affecting the Asmat.  
  • Irreversibly, this is the ending of one of earth's last traditional hunter gatherer cultures. The modern world is taking over the Asmat.
