Free the people of West-Papua

Free the people of West-Papua | Sanchez Indonesia | Scoop.it
Rebecca Sanchez's insight:

This photo relates to my research because they want liberation of imprisonment. They are seeking peace and equality amongst themselves just like the Fayu have over trial and error. I find this shocking to me because they all look happy in this photo yet inside its a whole different story. The head man there welcomed chaos and when there is chaos peace is hard to find. No one should have to go through hard times and wish for peace and happiness while they are seeing the imprisonment of loved ones happening in front of them.

60 Minutes - The Last Cannibals (West Papua) - YouTube

Ben Fordham goes back into the jungles of PNG to seek out the truth about Korowai boy Wawa
Rebecca Sanchez's insight:

This 60 Minutes Documentary, “The Last Cannibals (West Papua)” talks about the Korowai and how they live in the deep muddy jungle. They say how they live out of society’s realms and are accustomed to living like the Stone Age. The Korowai use Stone Age tools such as a stone axe and bow and arrows. Other tribes constantly confront the journalists for money and goods for their own benefit. The Korowai believe in black magic, the Kokra, it decides who will be killed and eaten. Some of the members in the tribe kill others whom they are close to because of Kokra such as a brother or a loyal friend. Once the member whom is one with the Kokra is found and killed, they decapitate and remove bodily organs to eat the human carcass. They believe that cannibalism is normal and part of their daily lives and customs. The women of the Korowai are quiet and are there to raise and feed wild baby boars. The Korowai have never seen white men in their life, as it was their first experience. They feel it is an important part of their lives to be cannibals to get rid of the Kokra spirit.

Separatist Rage

Separatist Rage | Sanchez Indonesia | Scoop.it
Rebecca Sanchez's insight:

This newspaper, “Digging for Trouble: Separatist rage runs loose in wild West Papua, home of stone-age tribes and the world's richest gold mine” talks about the Tribal war between the native Amungme people and the Dani settlers in 2010 who were brought in for easy money for illiterate laborers. They were in war for vengeance and fought for goods of their own tribes. They are named rebels, armed with bows and arrows and with a ruthless character; killed 9 woman and several children, burned down houses and tore villages apart as well as burning them down. They had no mercy toward each other all for resources and greed of needs. The president of West-Papua President Suharto, was disorganized in his efforts to stop the rebels and their raids. Rebels were arrested but were tortured and executed, as well as innocent villagers. Then protesters from a local Roman church ran a boycott a week straight until the Guerrilla army shot 9 and killed one. They were the same as the rebels and went against what they stood up for as they claimed they will wave their flag proudly in their doings.

Don't Sleep, There are Snakes: Life and Language in the Amazonian Jungle

Don't Sleep, There are Snakes: Life and Language in the Amazonian Jungle | Sanchez Indonesia | Scoop.it
Rebecca Sanchez's insight:

This novel relates to Child of the Jungle in the way of how the Christisan ministry wants to explore how the Piraha people  live their everyday lives. The main character wants to learn how they communicate and he becomes so into them that he loses his faith with God which he was going to introduce to them. i would read this novel since it caught my attention on how he went to change them when they changed him instead.

Missionary work

Missionary work | Sanchez Indonesia | Scoop.it

In this newspaper, “The Fight of Their Lives (World’s Indigenous Tribes Rallying to Survive)” talks about how ancient tribes are gradually growing out of their customs due to influence of the Missionaries that live with them. The missionaries started in the late 1930s continuing up to today to view and learn from the indigenous tribes. In today’s time they are seeing that the tribal youth are growing out of their customs and ancient ways into today’s present norms. The tribe’s leaders also find that they too are growing fond of the new norms and find themselves doing what the missionaries are doing. They are conforming to modern day society by wanting to dress more modern instead of the occasional grass skirt or smock. The missionaries have seen that some members of the tribe have converted to Christianity and attend school to have an actual education. They want to change to have a better future for themselves although they also are continuing their customs to keep their tribes alive.

Child of the Jungle

Child of the Jungle | Sanchez Indonesia | Scoop.it
Rebecca Sanchez's insight:

The book Child of the Jungle is about a girl who starts off in Germany by the name of Sabine. In the time she was in Germany, her father decided to become a missionary and decided to go off to Danau Bira, a small village in West-Papua Indonesia. Her father decided to go because of the Fayu tribe recently discovered there unknown by civilization to learn how they live life. Her mother, brother and sister go to Danau Bira as well. Sabine’s mother is a wise woman and serves as the Fayu tribe’s medical nurse. Meanwhile as they are living in the village, Sabine as well as her siblings, learn throughout their years living in the jungle to become one in nature. Sabine and her family become one with the Fayu tribe as they learn from each other throughout the years. During their time there, they encounter with a tribal uprising between the Fayu and Dou tribe. This eloped into tribal wars frequently over vengeance toward each other. Sabine and her family later see that the women of the Fayu tribe are not treated well by the men. So Sabine and her family teach the Fayu good morals and forgiveness not through teaching but through example. Sabine’s father is mainly interested in the tribe’s way of communication and how they manage things by trade and war.
