THE DAYAK, IFUGAO, AND NAGA HUMAN SKULLS ARE HEAD HUNTING TROPHIES. THE
 ASMAT, VANUATU, AND PALAWAN HUMAN SKULLS ARE CONSIDERED "ANCESTOR"
SKULLS. THE DIFFERENCE
IS; HEAD HUNTING SKULLS ARE ACQUIRED FROM ENEMY
VICTIMS WHILE
ANCESTOR SKULLS ARE COLLECTED AND VENERATED TO REMEMBER
 DECEASED FAMILY MEMBERS. THE IFUGAO ALSO COLLECT BONES OF DEAD RELATIVES,
WRAP THEM IN TRIBAL TEXTILES, AND STORE THEM IN THE RAFTERS UNDER THEIR
HUTS. HUMAN SKULLS AND SKULL CAPS FROM NEPAL ARE RITUAL OFFERTORY
VESSELS THAT ARE USED AS DRINKING CUPS IN TIBETAN BUDDHIST CEREMONIES.
SEVERAL CULTURES HONOR HUMAN SKULLS IN A VARIETY OF WAYS, BUT THEY ALL
CONSIDER HUMAN SKULLS VALUABLE ENTITIES THAT ARE
WORTHY OF PRESERVED COLLECTIONS BUT HUMAN SKULLS,
IN SOME CASES, HAVE BECOME A TRIBE'S PREOCCUPATION!
