Siberut & Mentawai people

Some photos from Siberut and Mentawai people (Indonesia) i'd like to share with you...

After 10 hour bumpy stomach-churning ferry ride continued with 3 hour canoe journey the adventure starts... trek through the jungle, full of mosquitos and leaches, mud, moist, sweat, rain, heat... 

mud, mud, mud...

did i mention the mud?

We stayed and lived with those people and do things like they do for centuries...

making clothes from sago


search for food...

...sago worms

sago worms... they eat them alive and is strange feeling when you put one in your mouth, but they actualy taste really good, like young hazelnut and ofcourse you don't stop after one kids just adore them

preparing poison for arrows

poisoning arrows

in the past they used to be great head hunters

trophies, mostly monkey heads


hope you like them...
