Tribal Villages[edit]

These small populated areas are mostly found scattered throughout the Arfak Mountains. Although, these places have unknown names that make them difficult to find. On the first census in 2010, census workers finally counted the population and number of villages since they journey through that region themselves to find them. The largest village had a population of 961. The total population for all of the villages was about 3,000.
