THE WOLANI, WEST PAPUA - 63261

Length: 1 x 60 mins

Price: $0.00

The highlands of West Papua are home to a mosaic of tribes who, because of the impenetrable terrain, live in isolation from everyone except other tribes. These tribal neighbours have been at war with each other for generations. Peace between the tribes is never certain. The Wolani chief has recently been murdered by his third wife. She did not want to have sex with him and has disappeared with her boyfriend. The tribe of the murdered chief wants compensation or war. The tribe will not take money because it is no use to them. Only traditional cowrie shells are acceptable.
