The Islands I Visited In Indonesia
East Kalimantan - Part 1




Starting in 1972,  I went to East Kalimantan  almost every year for the next fifteen years,
wandering around its Kutai regency, visiting the Dayak people of that area, accompanied
by a  guide/translator,  and a cook,  and carrying  a movie camera,  a still camera,  and an
audio tape recorder. After 1975 it was my custom to stay in the one of the two longhouses
of a  Dayak "village"   I had discovered.  Using that place as my base camp, I would go to
wherever I was informed  there was a happening for me to record.
