Title:

Mentawai Indigenous People of Siberut, Sumatra, Indonesia.

Caption:

On an early morning hunt, Teurepa aims a poison-tipped arrow at a fleeing monkey. After the first one misses the monkey by an inch, he quickly readies a second arrow, but he's not fast enough. The monkey is already out of range, almost out of sight, and Teurepa and his son Aman Surui, will return from their hunt empty-handed. They fear that this has happened because the chickens they sacrificed to the monkey spirits were not enough of perhaps a child who observed them making the poison broke a tribal taboo.
