Karang Bo', one of the most successful hunters. Peter Brosius remembered seeing him for the first time with pigs on his back, decades ago
Karang Bo', one of the most successful hunters. Peter Brosius remembered seeing him for the first time with pigs on his back, decades ago. My field assistant and I would light up whenever he came home from the hunt and I would egg him on to see if Karang had brought anything back. He told me he didn't want to re-adjust to life after resettlement; and he didn't. He died a few months after this photo.
