Title:

Mentawai Indigenous People of Siberut, Sumatra, Indonesia.

Caption:

The first arrow misses the monkey by an inch. Teurepa quickly readies a second arrow, but hes not fast enough; the monkey is already out of range and almost out of sight. Teurepa and his son Aman Surui will return empty-handed. Maybe the chickens sacrificed to the monkey spirits were not enough. Maybe one of the children who helped make the poison broke a taboo by swimming in the river before the hunt.
