    Background: Shots taken in the village of "Warmare", 40 km outside Manokwari towards the Arfak mountains.The Papuan village forms part of the migration-project according to which the Dutch encourage the mountain-Papuans to come out of their isolation and settle on fertile soil in the uplands where they can be reached more easily and will have a better opportunity to take advantage of the good things a far more advanced civilization has to offer.Very important are matters as: general cultivation, the preventing of under-nourishment and medical attention.As a matter of fact it is the second generation who gladly accepted the Government's offer.The men and women of old age prefer to stay high up in the mountains.In this village "Warmare", about 500 of the 1700 strong tribe of Moirees have settled up to now.Warmare will have room for 700 to 800 settlers.
