Mentawai Tribesman in the forest

The Mentawai tribesmen of Indonesia live in and on the forest. They usually go looking for the 'Sago worm' which is their main diet. The day I was there shooting we took a short walk to take some photographs in their back yard - The forests of Siberut on the Mentawai island chain. Here we see the two men taking a break.
