4 days staying with Korowai, Papua

In Brief:

The Korowai people live in the inaccessible jungle in the southeast of the Indonesian province of Papua, about 150 kilometres inland from the Arafura Sea. They are hunter-gatherers in a small society of traditional family ties who need to share all they have in order to survive. Like the Kombai, the Korowai are known for being great architects of tree houses high up in the tree. Until about 1975 the Korowai had hardly any contact with the outside world. Only the clans living close to a village, have g

iven up their traditional customs and they receive tourists when requested. Life up in a Korowai tree house  Sleeping with Cannibals.
