TRUNYAN not only has a unique burial tradition but this village also retains a rare traditional dance that is not found in any other village. The dance is named Barong Brutuk. In contrast to the other types of barong, Barong Brutuk does not take the shape of animals, but instead resemble a human being. The appearance of the Barong Brutuk remains very primitive as only the most rustic of materials are used for its attire.
