Korowai in Remote Papua has a very exotic tribe. They still grow up with nature and away from modern life. They are the Korowai tribe. Korowai tribe that was recently discovered that there are about 35 years ago in the interior of Papua. A population of around 3000 people. These isolated tribes live in a tree house called Rumah Tinggi. Some homes even can reach a height of 50 meters from the ground.

Korowai are one in mainland Papua who do not use sheath. Korowai people occupy forest area about 150 kilometers from the Arafura Sea. They were hunter-gatherers who have survival skills. Until about 1975, the Korowai have almost no contact with the outside world. They only know of them only.

Stay home or small settlements made by the government, is a relatively new phenomenon among the Korowai. They built a house that is divided into two or three rectangular room with a fire place in every room. Men and women lived separately. In 1992, when the government unveiled Yaniruma village Digoel, a team of documentary filmmakers have been able to visit the Korowai in their settlement.

Little information is known about the Korowai before 1978. However, from a variety of sources, it is known, is experiencing a period of headhunting tribe quaint. Korowai people’s contact with the outside world was recorded when they met an evangelist Johannes Veldhuizen, on October 4, 1978. After the contact, around 1980, the Church then build primary schools and outpatient clinics. During the first year, Johannes Veldhuizen and Henk Venema arrange meetings with the Korowai.

Between 1978 and 1990, Korowai still occupies the river downstream. They opened the gardens and hunting. They are also introduced to the healing methods of government health programmed. However, despite knowing outpatient clinics in Yaniruma, many of them still use traditional methods to cure the sick.

Korowai still largely independent. They produce axes of stone, made of salt and many others. Introduced the first money came from missionaries. They also helped pioneer the church and paid rupiah. With this money, they can buy goods at local stores such as salt, clothes, and a razor. Since 1990, the Korowai have been involved in forestry projects of foreign companies. They were employed as tour guides and boatmen.
