First contact with the Toulambi tribe - videos

In 1993 filmmaker Jean Pierre Dutilleux filmed "first contact" with a group of members of the Toulambi tribe in Papua, New Guinea.  Videos of this happening have been circling around the web and I just finished watching them and had to share.  I was blown away by the footage and can only imagine the wonder, fear and excitement that must have been felt by both parties.

You can view the rest of the footage below:
