Les Stroud's Beyond Survival

The Hewa And The Hidden Secret Ceremony Part 2

Season 1, Episode 10 of 20

Never before photographed or filmed, Stroud returns to the wilds of Papua New Guinea with special permission to travel three days on foot through the jungle- no roads exist; paths must be cut by machete- to carry out the 'Cumoutin' ceremony himself with the guidance of the Hewa. Les will participate in the full honoring ceremony, including ingesting Beetlenut before a village of 800 locals.
