S&F I had never seen this before. When they ate the rice, they kinda smacked themselves on the back of the head. I wonder if this was a sign of enjoyment or pleasure?? Or maybe their way of giving thanks? It sure looked funny when they did it. Great video. Thank you.
I noticed that too... the elder guy with the red feathers smiled after words so I think that is there sign of enjoyment, odd isn't it? makes me wonder how that evolved.. I certainly never feel compelled to hit myself in the head when I have a delicious bite of curry.

Well, I recall seeing the whole episode, and they traveled in the forest with them for a while.
I don't think they just dumped anything.
What I do know is that Duvelleux made money and a living out of the encounter, and the tribe made nothing as far as I know.
Now try doing that to Paris Hilton, or the Kardashians.
Shooting images is shooting a commodity; compared to taking trophies since colonial times.
Ironically I think he even mentioned in the program that they are below third-world poverty levels.
As for pleasure: it's a one way pleasure from what we know.
The tribe doesn't really look particularly ecstatic.
The white guy had a choice in traveling to find his pleasure (and business), the tribe had little choice in the matter.

I feel a strong desire to return to the wilderness, to the old ways and I take regular steps in that direction as often as possible.

I was in New Guinea around that time (mid 70's).This video could easily have been shot in the highlands region where I spent considerable time. The natives up there, in those days were wonderful gentle people and some of the stories I could tell you would make you laugh and cry.
Problem is, then we introduced them to the concept of money and taste of alcohol etc. Our missionaries, whilst they thought they were doing good, tried to convert them to our religions. Frankly, we tried to take a civilisation that was maybe 40,000 years behind us into our own supposedly civilised world..
It was a big mistake.
On my next trip, some 15 years later, white peoples homes were surrounded by high fences and barbed wire, you could no longer feel safe walking around .. especially at night. There were burlaries, assults and rapes where previously there had only been natural curiousity and friendship.
Sadly, we stuffed up big time there like we have in so many other places.

What a beautiful and gentle group of human beings. I’m an 1/8th percent American Indian.
My soul cries for the atrocities done to the indigenous Indians throughout the world. What white people did to the Indians of the Americas is the most heartbreaking thing in our history’s past, as was England and their cruelty to Australia’s aborigines.
If we do not learn to love each other, we will not survive.

as much as i enjoyed the video, i wish these scientist would just leave them alone!
Dunno if this quote is for real, but this really made me sad. It becomes obvious to me at least what the true disease of the world is...black man culture and religion, sorry to say but true.

I remember reading about this. It's an amazing video thats for sure but this tribe is.... weird lol. They don't know any better and i realize that but they only allow themselves about 100 days to get women pregnant. the other days the men and the younger boys have have homosexual relationships to preserve there "life force". If a women enjoys sex to much, she's considered a witch. If the younger boys are to sex hungry they're considered to be witches lol a lot goin on there thats for sure. I'm not bashing them in any way, thats what's normal for them they're not part of our society. Just spreading some education
