The Asmat are an indigenous hunter gatherer culture in west Papua, indonesia.
West Paua is about 1/2 of a very large island just north of australia in the south pacific ocean.
The traditional Asamt are one of the last hunter gatherer cultures in the world.
One traditional of the Asamt is the piercing the faces of the septum of the roses.
Another traditional of of the Asmat is painting the faces and body for both ceremony and war.
Traditional Asmat culture is turly awesome because they still keep there traditional ways of liveing and hunting and even war i wish i had there culture because i like how they have piercings and there faces painted and body. :D!!
SADLY THOUGH, DEFORESTATION , COLONIZATION, AND ASSIMILATION, ARE DEEPLY AFFECTING THE'' ASAMT''
Irreversibly, this is the ending of one of earth's last traditional hunter gatherer cultures. The modern world is taking over the Asamt.
