Yospan Dance in Manokwari Papua

I captured this video on 6 February 2010. There was a cultural carnival in Manokwari at the time celebrating the Gospel Preaching Day. The dancers in this video performed Yospan. Yospan stands for Yosim Pancar. It is a popular dance among Papuan youth that was introduced by tribes living around the Cendrawasih bay or Geelvink bay.
If we see from the video above, it seems that the costumes had been modified with the application of more modern clothes' material which is cotton. The cultural carnival in Manokwari is conducted every year and has become a major tourist attraction.
