For me this is a particularly interesting image as the clothing and styles are quite similar to Hausa and other more northern Sahel groups.

DAYAK WARRIORS. NOTE DAYAK WARCOATS AND THE SIZE OF THE POINTS ON THE WAR SPEARS IN SOME PICTURES. ONE DAYAK HAS A PISO PODANG. THE SINGLE WARRIOR IN A WARCOAT WAS DATED 1909 OTHERS NO DATE. ONE PICTURE OF SWORD PRACTICE WITH PROTECTIVE PADDING. ONE PICTURE OF MOCK BATTLE WITH WARRIOR PREPARING TO TAKE A HEAD. PERHAPS SOMEONE WITH MORE KNOWLEGE CAN IDENTIFY TRIBES.

Thumbs up

I LIKE THIS PICTURE AND SO WILL THE DHA GUYS. NOTE TWO SEEM TO HAVE DHA AND SEVERAL HAVE THE STRANGE AX WHICH I THINK IS REFERRED TO AS A MAK. THERE WAS AN OLD POST WITH A PICTURE OF WARRIORS ON HORSE BACK AND SOME HAD A STRANGE WEAPON. I HAD ONE AND POSTED THE PICTURE AND I THINK MARK IDENTIFIED IT AS A MAK. I SEARCHED BUT COULD NOT FIND THE POST FOR REFRENCE. ITS NICE TO SEE THE TRIBESMEN AND HOW THEY CARRIED THEM BALANCED ON THEIR SHOULDER. I HAVE A MAK AND A SMOKING PIPE FROM THIS GROUP.
