How are you all? I am doing great I hope you all are doing great too Indonesia is composed of some 18,000 islands Of which about only 6,000 have people that live on them Rest are empty There some main islands in Indonesia Including Bali Welcome to this West Papua island 4000 kilometers away from Bali Hello, how are you? Good? As you can see West Papua people Are (not so) friendly People here lead a tough life Poverty and lack of jobs They're always 'high' West Papua is hardly ever visited by tourists There's no tourism here at all We are now in Jayapura the main city of West Papua We are now going to Wamena A small town 300 kilometres from Jayapura Jayapura to Wamena is 300 kilometres To reach Wamena by bus or car It will take me 11 days To think it takes 11 days for just 300 kilometres Imagine what the roads will be like So we're going to take one-hour air trip from Jayapura to Wamena From top it looks like a different planet altogether Let's get going Like how we wait ages for a bus Same way here we are waiting for aeroplane Plane that had to arrive at 9:30 has arrived at 11:30 Flight delays are common here Slightly bigger than a toy aeroplane Like we've always heard That cities are costly And you can survive in village even with little money But in this village in West Papua Items here are 3X costlier than in cities Because there is no road connectivity Anything and everything has to each here by flight Now we are at the costly village market They're looking at me like they'll eat me up whole I'm shit scared Folks! People here are staring daggers at me Look at their gaze Just the look they give is scary enough to run away People here have no jobs So they do all kind of odd jobs You can imagine how they would've got these laptops Phones not of same kind But different varieties In every shop What are these? Folks, what's this they're selling here, peanuts? What's inside that? They are selling all kinds of unseen things Ohoh! Eating? Look at this red fruit This looks like jackfruit on the outside Like how we eat vegetables and greens They eat this the same way Folks, now I get it why tourists don't visit here Come any outsider these people start ridiculing them They talk in a way to scare Everyone Look, everyone is booing and yelling I'm just walking by myself And they're yelling at me Oh dear! I'm afraid on the inside But I'm not showing it outside I'm just smiling Folks, like I told you all before people here are hooked on drugs Be it children, young and old They are high all the time It's scary to talk to anyone If you try your antics here they'll send you packing Never coming here again A big salute to you all Who will at all come if they scare the tourists? No one will visit them Because of no connectivity in West Papua So here indigenous people live in large numbers here By indigenous, I mean tribal West Papua is more to more than 300 different tribes Our ancestors as well as theirs lived tribal life But in the name of development we have become spoilt But let's see people who've never been to cities Pig welcomes us This is the place where the Dani tribes live Out of more than 300 tribes in West Papua Dani tribes is one of them The speciality of the Dani tribes is 100-200-300 years ago Their ancestors Who proved to be brave heroes They still preserve their physical bodies They consider this house to be divine In the Dani tribe 300 years ago Those who were masters at hunting They still preserve bodies of such men Here it is 300 years old human body I'm shivering all over His name is Vimithok 374 years ago He was the boss of the Dani tribes When Dani tribes fought other tribes He was the one who led the battle Any human or animal invaders He'd just hunt them down In one such battle, he was shot at by an enemy arrow This here This bone was broken when struck by arrow When they took part in wars They preserved only the top boss's bodies They don't preserve everyone's bodies Look at his legs It's hard to breathe out here He's wearing a headband worn by kings during battles Completely dry and worn-out Just the skeleton, nothing left These threads signify The exact age of the mummy 374 threads have been tied year Every year a new thread is tied So these threads will give the exact age of this mummy I wonder how they have preserved it for all these years This is what the traditional dress of the Dani tribe looks like This here is called Koteka What's inside this? It's empty Do they use it to drink water? No This Koteka Men of Dani tribe Wear it on their penis Why they wear, I don't know But this is the traditional dress of men of Dani tribes Just this, they don't wear anything else But the women of Dani tribes are like this Tribal people have their own manners, customs, superstitions This is just one of their wild customs When she was a kid, her father passed away Due to reasons Because her father died Her kith and kin Cut off her fingers Cut not with knife or speak or blade Her fingers were severed using sharp stones Not just these tribal people Even other tribes Other people Or any other part of the world Be it from past, present and future When we look back at history Violence is rampant against women They are the ones punished Be it husbands or fathers or children Whoever dies It's the women's fingers that's severed They give pain to the alive Any other country or in your own neighbourhood Let's pledge to end violence against women They've chopped off even her ears Same custom, if any of her folks dies her ears or fingers are severed Folks, my friend is telling the other group of Dani tribes In their own language that an outsider has come That is the watchtower of Dani tribes He's guarding the place Now we have come to the land of Dani tribes without permission In earlier times they couldn't stand getting invaded by other tribes And would result in war between the host and invader tribe Let's see how a war happens He's watching to see if anyone is coming If he sees any outsider coming he will alert his tribe He is ready to launch his arrow They can't stand the sight of an outsider Ready to shoot the arrow Is he going to launch the arrow now? You never know Dani tribes war happening here Like how countries hate each other Same way, tribes despised each other They would wage wars and kill the leader or whole tribes In earlier times, they didn't have gun or RDX or bomb Only hand-to-hand weapons like bow and arrow, sling, spear Look how different that tribe looks from this tribe These are Dani tribes And they are different tribes When I met Masai tribes in Africa I felt like wearing their dress, so I wore it Now that I'm with Dani tribes Don't tell me to wear their dress! Folks! Dani tribes have won't the battle The victorious Dani tribes How will they celebrate it back in their clan? Like how back in our land celebration is an alcohol affair But how do the Dani tribes celebrate? Come on, let's watch All the members of the tribe are enjoying singing their desi songs Everyone are overjoyed While they are enjoying singing Here they are preparing for cooking Oh look, they are preparing a fire Dear folks! Look at their style They heated the stones for so long I kept waiting To see if they would put something in it to cook But nothing but stone The stones are all black and burnt They are transfering the heated stones here What's this Dani special? What are they really trying to do? Dry grass And fresh-cut grass And hot stones on top of it No idea what they're trying Okay okay Look at what the women have picked up from the forest Vegetables, greens, corn, sweet potato Mostly this is their food They are using special stones When stones are burnt to such an extent Chances are they will blast But their stones didn't blast They've put the heated stones here On top of it a layer of fresh grass The women are placing the vegetables on top the grass Oh look at this sweet potato What's this? Is this Sambar cucumber? Corn In for a mouth-watering feast! They put raw vegetables inside And covered it in grass Now again a layer of hot stones Folks, everyone are happy! For the food is ready They let it cook for one hour One layer of heated rock Dry grass on top of it Fresh-cut grass on top of it Then the vegetables Then again fresh grass And again a layer of dry grass And lastly another layer of heated rock Totally 4-5-6-7 layers I've never seen food cooked this way Because I don't see fire What a technique really! The vegetable that we saw in the market in the morning Cooked well and good The sweet potato was raw when put inside But now it's all cooked to perfection Such a wonder Vegetables beautifully cooked without any utensils Thank you thank you thank you Here's to all of us! Time to taste Cooking with rocks, what an idea! Truly something beyond all our imagination You can try it too Simply delicious Tastes amazing The lifestyle of Dani tribes is a wonder to watch I never thought I would see the likes of this The salt the Dani tribes use for cooking Don't have the habit of buying it from shops They make their own salt Nature gives them free salt How? Let's check from that mountain Dear gods.. I mean the God above us Gives these people natural salt For free We have almost reached the top of the mountain To check out the salt mine People are fetching salt water from the river Here is the salt spring Nature given salt spring For the tribal people here To reach this salt spring We trekked for two hours We are now at the top of the mountain We know of salt water from ocean But on top mountains Back in our land We mostly find sweet water But here we find salt water on top the mountain This salt spring is very helpful to people here Like how in our homes we make special dishes Similarly they are making their special dish More like a snack Snack made from salt water First they scrape and tear banana stem Soak it in salt water And then dry it To make this snack This here is salt water Very very salty water People fill it in bottles and take it home for cooking After soaking the banana stem in water for 20 minutes Now they're squeezing the water out This eatable made from banana stem is called Iluge Salty snack Fiber-like And this how they eat it Intoxication is a prevalent feature of these people Like how people use Cigarette, alcohol, betel leaf and nut Similarly these people eat such eatable items Like how betel nut is chewed and spit Same way this salt snack is chewed and spit They always need something to chew It's their culture and tradition that has been passed down We can't call it bad For us Cigarette, alcohol, betel leaf and nut is bad It's harmful to their bodies, yes But it's been passed down through the cultures We can't call it good or bad The old lady is 'high' on salt She's dancing 'If you want to be born Take birth in Kannada land' 'If you want to step on Step on Kannada soil' 'Ding chak Ding Ding chak' 'Ding chak Ding Ding chak' Okay, dear folks!
