Kombai

Kombai hunter against giant leaf in the highland of central Irian Jaya, Indonesia. There are about 4,000 or so members of the Kombai, most of whom live in tree houses to protect themselves from the heat, wild animals, mosquitos and enemy tribes. The Kombai are hunter gatherers, hunting a wide range of prey including the imposing cassowary, and wild boar. It seems that, even today, cannibalism is still carried out by the Kombai. It appears to be a form of tribal punishment against men identified as witches by the community, who are killed and eaten. #kombai #papua #irianjaya #indonesia #onassignment #kodak #kodakfilm #asmat #korowai #hunter (at Central Irian Jaya, Indonesia.)
