Sabine Kuegler grew up in the ungles of West Papua #Indonesia Among An Indigenous Tribe #among an indigenous tribe of the Jungle is a memoir about her childhood and transition to adolescence which she makes after returning to Europe Kuegler is a good storyteller her experiences are interesting because of their specificity but at the same time they are universal to children everywhere The reader gets to hear about tribal warfare marriage customs games relationships and I laughed out loud many times throughout this book but Dragonsbane just as many times was moved by the emotional depth of some of the occurrences Child of the Jungle is an international Incredible true story about a western child knowing only a western world from her parents tales and a few books only Born in Nepal her family moved to Indonesianungle where they lived amongst indigenous people that have had no contact with civilisation until then This western family had lasting impact on the tribe who might have otherwise killed themselves to extinction Sabinethe author is later torn between two worlds and struggles to fit in and adjust to modern way of life in Europe Throughout the book we can witness how the ethical stance of these simple people is changing and the change is unforced but learned by observation of the Western family We can argue therefore that the contact with the tribe has benefited the whole community I remember watching a program where the Brazilian government has decided to leave alone a fairly recently discovered villages deep in the ian ungle while flying the plane over their area The government thought that not initiating a contact would be best for those people After I read the Jungle child I think the people behind this decision are mistaken that it is somehow not fair not to show these people a better world The original photographs are a true treat How did I hear about this book Why did it arrive at the library for me Why did I bother reading the first 40 pages after noting it was about a missionary family working to convert indigenous folks in Papua New Guinea Nope Jungle Child is the auto biography by Sabine Kuegler who grew up among the Fayu an indigenous tribe in West Papua studied by her parentsHer life among the Fayu was also made into a film
