Have you ever thought of a world without technology? A world where there are no phones, cars or any other form of technology? History has it that, the first humans to live lived in a technology-free world but we know nothing about their experiences back then. In today’s world of modern civilization where technology is abundant, there is a group people out there who still live without any form of technology in their lives.
The Korowai tribe are a fascinating tribe only recently discovered in Papua New Guinea. Up until the 1970s, there had been no previous recorded contact between them and the western world. In fact, scientists believe the tribe may not have ever realised anyone else even existed other than themselves. Here’s what you should know about the Korowai Tribe.
The social organisation of the Korowai is very small. Clans of ten to twenty people (usually three to five families) live independent of one and other. Each clan is composed of descendants from the same ancestor. There is no hierarchy and all members, both men and women, all have the same rights. However, strong or older men are the most respected.
However, these small groups of people are able to live their lives without the use of any technologies. For centuries, these group of people have managed to live solely by natural means without any influence from modern civilization.
From how they live, what they eat and the work they do are all technology-free. They are territorial and live in tree houses. There are usually not more than five tree houses in one settlement, and typical family home is built about 8 to 12 metres above the forest floor. However, in certain areas some of the tree-houses reach as high as 45 meters.
The Korowai tribe’s number one occupations are hunting and farming. While fishing is likewise not unusual, the tribe has a recognition for being expert with bows, arrows and spears. They harvest sago from the sago palms in their gardens, catch fish from the river, and hunt wild pigs in the bush. The staple food in their diet is sago.
Above all, this Tribe is also known for their hospitality; though in a primitive way. The next time you’re thinking of a tourism destination, you know the right choice to make. Trust me, you won’t regret your decisions. And you can thank me later.
