March 26, 2016 - Ratenggaro (Indonesia). Pasola riders throw their spears hoping to strike a member of the opposing clan. Riders are grouped into 2 teams, based on their traditional clans. The aim of the Pasola is to throw blunted wooden spears at the opposition riders while trying to avoid their counter attacks. © Thomas Cristofoletti / Ruom
