HomeBlogs Traditional Tobelorese Ceremonial Dress The very best time to see Tobelorese dressed up in all their
traditional finery might just be during the yearly North Halmahera
Cultural Festival. Unlike at "real" traditional events like the wedding
above, at the festival all dancers have to wear full traditional dress,
and as it' a competition, they make an effort to look fine! This group
is from a local school in Tobelo town, having just dressed p to go and
perform tide-tide and cakalele dances.
