among the wanchos
 
 
From January 21 - February 9, 2008, Enodo guide, Jon Derksen, led a seven-person crew into the remote Patkai Hills of India’s northeastern border region with Myanmar (Burma) to film tattooing traditions of the Wancho tribal people.  The Discovery Channel crew was the first ever to officially be allowed to film among the Wanchos, ex-headhunters of the Tirap Disctrict of Arunachal Pradesh, which up until 2004 were virtually unknown to the outside world.  
 
Episode 9 “India’s Royal Tattoo” is expected to air sometime in the Fall of 2008 on the Discovery Channel.
