Educating the Masses and New Educational Video

Healing Seekers: Papua New Guinea, Crocodile People, Sago, and Betel Nut

The Team and the Board of Directors is excited to announce the latest video from Expedition Papua New Guinea. We wish to thank the Emily Millis-Hiatt Donor Advised Fund for their continued support and for making this educational video possible.

In this segment, the team continues to explore Papua New Guinea where they meet a tribe, the Crocodile People, and learn of a young man’s ‘Right of Passage’. An excruciating procedure, all young men must go through this ritual in order to be accepted within the tribe and to have a wife. While also trekking in this area of the country, the team discovers a man and his daughter making sago, a food staple. Utilizing the materials of a tree, sago is created and eventually used as part of their diet . The video ends with a segment about betel nut, a curious tasting mixture that is used to increase stamina and alertness. It has become a habit of many people in the region.
