West Papua is home to over 300 differenttribes including one of the mostisolated tribes in the world, how oftenare they being visited this is not blackterrific spot they live in the jungleand then moving normalize for flights atwo-hour drive and miles of trekkingthrough the rainforest has brought mehere famous for their homes high in thetrees the coral why people live and eatdifferent from any place. I’ve seen onearth this is the way how will yousurvive in the jungle Oh today. I’ll bemaking contact how do. I say hellofollowing in their footsteps they justsaw something in the woods here andliving the life of the coral.
I peopleI’ve been doing this now for over threeyears dozens of countries hundreds ofvideos and this is undoubtedly the mostdifficult and arduous journey. I’veundertaken the long shaky flightssharing hotel rooms with a gang ofroaches and this seemingly unendingtrudge into the rain forest it’s all inthe pursuit of documenting the world’smost unique food and something tells me. I’m not gonna be disappointedtrying to look old it’ll work thisregion has experienced days ofrelentless rainfall more than usual itlooks beautiful but one wrong step onetwisted ankle and it could take days toreach proper facilities we are on ourway to the car why people and it is nojoke right here there used to be a logbut it has fallen down that’s way tooearly to get my feet wet man it’s nevergonna be dry here there is a currentthough guys so like you gotta lean intoit a little bit Oh done huh kids what doyou think huh no big deal all right theywere here like half an hour ago ideallyyou’ve got feet with some callousbuildup so you can just feel your waythrough the water instead I just gotthese on so.
I’m trying to not get waterin my shoe these guys that’s like noissue at all it’s hilarious the core ohI thought they were alone in the worlduntil 40 years ago when first contactwas madenow many coral-y have been drawn to amodern lifestyle trading in treehousesfor homes and villages outside therainforest but some some still livetoday as they did hundreds of years agoat this point my biggest question islike what do you enjoy eating what isyour favorite food out here is it justabout staying alive or is there somefood that’s like the treasured foodtoday there are only 3,000 Korowai inPapua what you are about to witness hasnever before been documented on videoWow quickly go through what they gotoday we will the Big Chief come to pickus up ah how do I say hello Padre gottenit go today go today how far is thevillage from here almost 30 minutes areyou hunting before I used to kill theenemy but now I just come here to pickyou up not for killing you veryself-defenseyeah well I want to say thank you somuch for allowing us into your villageand lastly.
