Mt Tavurvur is still smoking up after 13 years, some parts of the
Rabaul town is still under the ash, but people are living with Volcano.
I am not sure if Baining Fire Dance is related with this Volcanic activities, but I just guess that ancient people must have tried to contral the God of the mountain
by the Fire Dance ?? Bainings are now living in the hinterland but were the traditional residents of Rabaul before being chased by Tolais, so it could be true ??
National Mask Festival will be held in Rabaul/Kokopo and is coming soon - 16th-19th Jul !!
