These finely painted warriors, spears in hand and marching in common, literally quake the ground with the unison of their footfall. The elaborate attention to detail is used for ceremony and warfare.
One can imagine the importance of appearing imposing in the jungle when in battle. Tribal fighting is most common in the Highlands, largely due to the fact that the people were not discovered until the 1930s. Thus, the Highlanders, have for a millennium, been living in response to the immediate environment of the wildlife surrounding them, resolving disputes through physical confrontation.
However, the usage of fighting does not in the least outweigh the great hospitality of these people, nor the large hearts which reside in them.
