BORNEO DEATH BLOW
A blowpipe-hunter tribe uncertain future
The Borneo island is home to the Penan, a blowpipe-hunter tribe. They use deadly poison darts to catch their preys and are experts at building rainproof shelters in under an hour. Their survival skills, nomadic culture and traditional knowledge enable them to be the last tribe remaining in one of the oldest and most diverse rainforests on Earth.
However, with around 90% of the forest cut down, the Penan are facing a dire future.
