There are three main tribes that inhabit the baliem valley : Dani tribe in the lowest plain, Lani tribe in west and Yali tribe in south-east. Each tribe has a different culture. One sure and interesting way to distinguish those tribes is from Koteka, or penis gourds, worn by men. The Dani tribe uses a long thin of koteka, Lani tribe uses the round shape, and Yali tribe using the longest koteka of all with the rattan around the waist. Usually single women - Dani or Lani tribes - wearing short leather skirts under the buttocks, while married women wearing orchid fiber skirts, sometimes decorated with straw and woven bags called "noken" and placed on their backs. Dani and Lani are closely related - speak in different dialects of the same language but can still understand each other. While Yali tribe speaks in completely different language with other tribes. They live in a distant virgin forest located on a higher plateau. Can take 5 days trip by land to reach it.
Before 1970, the yali tribe closed from the outside world and was suspected to be still cannibals before the missionaries introduction the Christian religion and opened to the outside world.
