Despite civilization: where wild tribes still live, some are willing to kill foreigners

Cities are being built, people are going into space, and Elon Musk is approaching the colonization of Mars. Meanwhile, in different parts of the world, wild tribal peoples still live in different parts of the world, not recognizing the gifts of civilization. Some of them are friendly, while others are ready to kill any stranger. The most colorful of them are in OBOZREVATEL's selection.

Himba (Namibia)

This semi-nomadic tribe has been living in the deserts of Namibia for hundreds of years. They are quite friendly and do not show any aggression unless there is a special need. Tourists, researchers, and photographers can get along with these people with the help of local guides. The villagers are happy to meet new guests. At the same time, the rules and customs of Himba have not changed for several centuries. People here still sew their own clothes, marry in an arranged marriage, and obey the chief. They do not recognize telephones, electricity or other benefits of civilization.

Bayaka (Congo)

For most scholars, these tribes are known as pygmies. However, the jungle dwellers themselves call themselves Bayaka. They are a wild but very friendly people who have spent many centuries among the dense forests. It is here that they feel absolutely safe. Bayaks eat whatever they can catch or find. These are small and large animals, berries, and leaves. Medicines are obtained by the same method. Tourists rarely see them because they are incredibly good at hiding among the greenery. Nevertheless, guides conduct excursions and familiarize foreigners with the customs of these people. They are not afraid of visitors, so they do not attack them.

However, it should be noted that the pygmies have changed their way of life a bit in recent years. They started to buy clothes and sometimes come to the nearest villages to buy food and things. They earn money mainly from tourists by performing rituals and organizing entertainment programs. It is very easy to distinguish the Bayaks from other Congolese people - they are quite short. This is one of the reasons why tribes are so interesting to researchers.

Chimbu (New Guinea)

For this people, the encounter with civilization was a huge shock. The inhabitants of remote areas of Papua had not met modern people until 1980. They ate what they could find, sewed clothes from animal skins, and lived in small houses made of tree branches and leaves. However, at the end of the twentieth century, New Guinea began to grow rapidly, and the wild peoples had to constantly look for a new place. The way of life of the Chimbu also changed. Due to the destruction of forests, they had to earn money for food. They do this with the help of tourists, for whom they perform a rite of the Spirits, painting themselves into skeletons.

Huli (New Guinea)

The largest tribal people of Papua has more than 150 thousand inhabitants. It has its own primitive political and economic systems, division into clans, and state system. At the same time, the Hulia people are very active in contact with other people and even participate in the life of New Guinea. They perform at festivals, conduct excursions, and speak several local languages fluently.

This tribe does not completely abandon the benefits of living in civilization. Here you can see ordinary clothes, food from supermarkets, and even comfortable mattresses. At the same time, the Papua people do not change the ancient traditions of their people and the old rules.

Dogon (Mali)

The Dogon indigenous tribes live in the western part of Africa. Interestingly, this area is extremely attractive to historians. Unique wall paintings can be found here in the mountains. Some of the paintings date back to the 13th and 14th centuries. They depicted not only the everyday processes of local life, but also astronomical calculations and maps. But now these tribes have lost their influence. They live away from people, earning money on excursions and selling souvenirs.
