“John Wayne (Fame!)
THE STONE AGE was still alive in New Guinea in 1971.
Keith, an ex Australian Government patrol officer no longer employed to stop cannibalism and head hunting, was to guide me to a village twenty miles deep into the mountainous jungle. I wanted to hear their myths of origin and creation. He knew the chieftains, their language and all their customs.
We drove down a jungle trail in an open jeep.
At the outskirts of the village Keith shouted, “We are driving through!”
The natives had covered their skin with yellow clay. Some females had chopped off the ends of their fifth finger. . . “
