...What A Wonderful World...
1976 Papua New Guinea
Tribe Meets White Man For First Time
This is an amazing piece of historical footage. It documents the first time a native tribe in the deep forest of New Guinea meets a white man (who happens to be wearing a Rolex Submariner).
The tribe is fascinated with the anthropologist, and since they have never seen a person with white skin they are really confused. At first they rub his arm to see if he is perhaps he has white powder on his skin? There is nothing so great as the Spirit Of Inquiry and this film shows a tremendous amount of beautiful humanity.
