How is this the vegan option? Is it one of those fake meat things? I’d go for that if rice was the only other choice. Also post more stories about the place.

Did you see the Ropen?

>> No.12776948

They do conduct canabalism in the highlands. Its more Symbolic than an every-day thing. As in a celebration for winning a tribal war.
They also use the bones for witchdoctor medicines and arrow tips.

>> No.12776953

No. I want to see a bird of paradise, but they keep eating them all.

Rabbits have also been introduced into New Guinea in the 40's as a food source. Cunts ate the lot of them.
