Monday, April 28 – Papua and New Guinea: Remote Western Sepik Region

Join adventurer Pierre Odier for a look at Papua and New Guinea, the eastern half of the great bird-shaped island lying to the north of Australia. This is one of the last places on earth where primitive man can still be seen in his natural stone age environment. Old rituals still take place seldom seen by outsiders. Bows and arrows, spears and clubs are still used to settle disputes. The vast rainforest regions make it impossible for a government to manage, especially considering the 700 tribes speaking their own language. 16 days in that region provided Odier with many insights to a culture usually just referred to as “savage headhunters.”
