Du site de l'ed.: The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology presents the first, solo show of the photographs of the late Michael Rockefeller taken in 1961 in the highlands of New Guinea. This selection of black-and-white photographs has been chosen from the 117 rolls of black-and-white film (approximately 3,500 images) taken while Rockefeller was a member of the Peabody Museum's New Guinea Expedition (1961-1963). The photographs document the life of the Dani people dwelling in the Baliem Valley, high in the mountains of New Guinea, today Irian Jaya, Indonesia. In addition to their rich documentary content, these photographs reveal much about the sensibility behind the camera. Many of the photographs in the exhibition are vintage prints made in the early 1960s. A few of the photographs were published in the volume about the expedition Gardens of War (Random House, 1968). Most have never before been published or publicly displayed

Dead birds by Robert Gardner( Visual )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1990 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A remarkable documentary and one of the most important anthropological film studies ever made. From February 1961 to November 1963, an expedition sponsored by the Peabody Museum carried out a photographic and ethnographic study of the DugumDani (Dani), a people living in the Kurelu area of the Baliem Valley, Dutch New Guinea (now Irian Jaya, Indonesia). The film was made by Robert Gardner in 1961, before the Baliem Valley was pacified by the Dutch government and before the valley's stone age society was irrevocably changed. Dead Birds is a meditation on the neolithic culture of the Dani, who lived according to an elaborate system of inter-tribal warfare and revenge. The film focuses on Weyak, a farmer and warrior, and Pua, a young swineherd, and follows them through the events of Dani life: agriculture, salt collection, ritualized warfare, raids, and funeral ceremonies. "Dead Birds has a meaning which is both immediate and allegorical. In the Dani language it refers to the weapons and ornaments recovered in battle. Its other more poetic meaning comes from the Dani belief that people, because they are like birds, must die." Robert Gardner
