Watch Video First !

Anthropologist Pierre Lemonnier who denounced this documentary as fraud in an article for the French Newspaper Liberation, studied the Papuans of the district of Marawaka for over a decade and says that the supposedly "unknown tribe" lives less then four days away by foot from an administrative center with teachers, a landing strip, a radio, nurses and of course a preacher (it's important for the natives to know that they’re going to hell : / ). They also use the Vailala River to travel to the coast to exchange handmade tableware made out of tree back for modern tools.
