Les Stroud's Beyond Survival

The Mentawai Shamans Of Indonesia Part 2

Season 1, Episode 20 of 20

Living with Mentawai for eight days, Les prepares to hunt with a bow and poison arrow. Being tattooed by a Shaman using traditional techniques allows him to prove his intention and commune with animal spirits. Forced deeper into the jungle as hunting grounds diminish, the Mentawai call on the earth to provide, believing their singing of shamanic songs attunes their souls and connects them to nature.
