Mentawai tribe: Tattoos – Tribal Wives – BBC

October 21st, 2010


Doctor Andrea Wraith joins the Mentawai tribe in Indonesia to learn more about bodily rituals such as tattoos and teeth sharpening, and is baffled by the high tolerance the tribe women seem to have for pain. Interesting short video from BBC show Tribal Wives. Part of a series. Six women give up their everyday lives and spend a month living with some of the world’s most remote tribes, immersing themselves fully into their new culture. Each woman must work, eat and sleep exactly as the other tribal women.

    I wonder why the white woman seem surprised and clearly she is feeling sorry for the girl. Why? People get tattoo in the west all the time. People pierce their ear and dont forget Brazilian waxing. But when it comes to a tribal culture these journalisys act like it is strange and bad. I hate that.

    xhosa ? cool I have 2 xhosa neighbors Mbali and her sister is Nandipha.slim light brown girls of pure xhosa heritage.
    i am an ingenous culture lover.yes red is symbolic , tribes across africa, asia , latin america also use it for the exact same purposes.people have a lot more in common that we think.

    a few african tribes also do the tooth sharpening thing. I am surprised so many indigenous cultures have a lot in common.
