Wigge travels to the Venezuelan Amazon rainforest to live with Sanema Indians at the Rio Caura. The report provides an up-close insight into a culture that has remained practically untouched by Western culture. For his report, he immerses himself into the daily life of the Indian tribe and takes part in preparing food, hunting, building huts and leisure activities such as liana swinging.
The goal of this report is to follow up on the basic statement made by an American psychologist as a result of a long-term study. In her book “The Continuum Concept”, the author argues that the Sanema Indians are the happiest people on earth.
Wigge’s report reveals how these people live in a light-hearted and often self-mocking manner that completely breaks down the barriers between the tribe and himself, an outsider.
