Pigmy Princess

This video is beyond words, you just have to watch it!

Dubbed the “Pigmy Princess”. the little lady in this clip dances in some sort of traditional dress, possibly from South Pacific Island and sings a song in her own native language. The narrator dryly says “there they found a little lady who starts where Mae West leaves off” (!) We wonder if the woman is actually a tribeswoman or if it’s a contrived performance designed to profit from tourists? It’s certainly quite scary.
