Meet the Korowai tribe, they live on trees

The korowai people are indigens of papua in Indonesia, the still live in the believes of thousands of years ago.

They live in the southern part of Papua which is in boundary with Guinea

The korowai people sacrifices anyone believed to be a "khakhua" 

A KHAKHUA is believed to be a demon who takes a human form to live as a family member, gain their trust and lure them to death.

so if anyone of them is suspected of being a Khakhua he definitely stands a chance to be sacrificed and have parts of his body eaten by the others.

they live in the rainforest and still practice the old pattern of feeding, living and treatment

they also live in trees and go about with only a piece of cloth around their waist and body.

What do you think about this tribe and how they live??
