Korowai Tribe

Korowai Trips

Koroway – tree people – one of the least civilized tribes on Papua. Women walk half-naked, their genitals covered only with grass skirts. They decorate themselves with dog and pig teeth and with tusks of wild boars. Some of them still live in the houses built in tree-tops. Koroway Tribe live in an area which is behind the imaginary “pacification line“. Koroway tribe is for the larger part an intolerant tribe, which rejects civilization and contact with missionaries or neighboring tribes. Despite that, we managed to get into their territory and become to a certain extend friends with them.
