West Papua Expedition First Look !
|Deep in Korowai territory, in West Papua, the
family which hosted us last night. They own virtually nothing, move from
a tree house to a new one they build every two years or so.|
Bobosun, a young Korowai. They don't know their age. He is probably 10. What is he dreaming about? What is future will be like?
|Hunting wild pig with Oni, a Korowai elder in West Papua. Later, building a basket to catch fish in river (with ant nest bait) http://ow.ly/i/3y0rE http://ow.ly/i/3y0rQ http://ow.ly/i/3y0sh|
|Spending a relaxing evening and night in a Korowai tree house with our new friends...|
The new generation of Korowai: The kid will probably end up in 'school' in a few years. The governement is building wooden houses in villages along the main rivers to try to convince Korowai tribes to move to 'civilization'...
|A balanced meal for our Korowai expedition: bananas, grilled bananas and fried bananas... but no banana split :(|
Security check at Wamena airport, West Papua... ;)
|Where the Korowai of West Papua live. 'Civilization' is approaching fast and will change their lifestyle. For better or worse?|
|My bathtub last week... really...|
