Eco-Traveler Safari Film

At the culmination of filming the documentary Eco-Traveler Safari of Sarawak on the Island of Borneo our crew has a little fun with the Iban tribal people(headhunters) in their longhouse. While these out takes were never included in the original documentary, those with whom we have shared the clips found the Iban a friendly and fun loving people. We witnessed the "Dance of The Warriors", learned about their rituals, and taboos but we were not allowed to leave without sharing Tuac the ritual drink. It was at this time that we shared a few gifts, a little magic of our own without upstaging the tribal medicine man. Then we thought it best to be on our way.
