A Tale of Cannibals, Colonialism, and Michael Rockefeller's Tragic Quest for Primitive ArteBook
Michael Rockefeller disappeared in New Guinea in 1961. Rumors surfaced that he'd been killed and ceremonially eaten by the local Asmat, a native tribe of warriors whose complex culture was built around sacred, reciprocal violence, head hunting, and ritual cannibalism. The Dutch government and the Rockefeller family denied the story. Retracing Rockefeller's steps, Hoffman traveled to the jungles of New Guinea to solve a decades-old mystery and illuminate a culture transformed by years of colonial rule.
