The Korowai tribe with about 3,000 people is a secret community living in Papua, Indonesia.

According to The Daily Telegraph, they were first discovered by Westerners in 1974, when a group of scientists had an accident when they settled and learned about their shooting skills and basic knowledge of social interaction.

The amazing footage shows the Korowai people feeding on live bugs at the scene. Protect and repair their primitive houses on stilts.

The Korowai people cannot obtain modern medicine, so they use herbs and witchcraft to cure diseases.

They are rumoured to practise cannibalism and live in trees but some anthropologists dispute this.

It has been claimed the tribesmen now dupe western media to promote tourism by perpetuating myths.

Generally, the life expectancy of tribal members is under 50 years.

According to reports, the tribe has no relevant scientific knowledge and therefore believes that the death was caused by the "khakhua" or demons in human form.

Some people say that anyone killed by the "demon" was eaten by the rest of the tribe. This is a strange revenge ritual designed to protect the rest of the Korowai people, despite the dispute.

Some anthropologists believe that the clans in the tribe continue the myth of cannibalism to promote people's interest and tourism.
