Pokman • Sona
Sona / The people of Sona take part in the second stage of the Pokman resurrection feast honouring the ancestors. In this part of the feast, women and men play the equivalent of tug-of-war using a canoe. Women and men alike are allowed to playfully attack one another, in this case men pulling the canoe are blinded by lime hurled from a bamboo that belongs to one of the participants. The Pokman feast is a threeâpart Asmat feast honouring the ancestors' resurrection.
