Lecture 4
Tribes and Tribulations

  tribes Still relatively unexplored, Papua New Guinea, the third largest island in the world, has been described as containing ‘fierce warlike people who are cannibalistic and head-hunters’. In a land where 830 distinctive languages are spoken, there are still tribal wars held and women are believed to have a bad influence on men both spiritually and in being.

‘Tribes and Tribulations’ is an introduction to the tribal life of Papua New Guinea and looks at dispelling the many myths which exist outside of the country. We visit Mudmen, Wigmen, Yimas and the Yetmore tribes who worship the crocodile. Papua New Guinea is a wild country where few visitors come but those who do, receive a warm and unforgettable welcome.
