The traditional Honai house is the centre of community life in the central highlands. It is in the Honai that all cultural rituals take place, from clan gatherings to peace making. As time has progressed, the people of Wamena have lived in a new type of abode, which they call Rumah Sehat (healthy houses). Although the young generation have settled in these houses, they still believe that Honai resembles the centre of their ethnic groups, which need preservation.

Rumah tradisional Honai merupakan pusat kehidupan bagi masyarakat di kawasan Pegunungan Tengah. Di Honai inilah seluruh sistem kehidupan seperti beragam ritual, pertemuan klen, perdamaian, dilakukan. Sejalan dengan perkembangan zaman, warga Wamena juga menempati pola pemukiman baru yang disebut Rumah Seng atau Rumah Sehat. Meski generasi muda sudah banyak yang menempati rumah tersebut, namun mereka masih percaya bahwa honai tetap menjadi pusat adat yang tetap harus dilestarikan.
