Wasn't really sure in which forum this belonged, but there are some interesting photos of a tribe in Papua here: http://mbvtravel.com/tree-people-in-indonesia-photos-george-steinmetz/

Here's the first one to whet your appetite.

abandoned? it's only a 6-storey climb up a ladder ... what a waste of good housing.

there is a TV documentary about this tribe out there somewhere; i saw it about a year ago. very interesting.
