The last kannibals

The Korowai live in Irian Jaya, the Indonesian part of New Guinea. For reasons of safety, the Korowai have chosen to live in the treetops. In this highly dense forest, game is scarce. When the Korowai kill an enemy, they bring the body back to camp to be eaten. Only small children and pregnant women do not partake in cannibalism. In spite of these customs, which to us seem barbarous, the Korowai are a charming people.
