    A Korowai treehouse, West Papua New Guinea, Indonesia.  The Korowai are a nomadic forest people who live in tree houses, constructed close to 100 feet up in the jungle. The distinctive high stilt architecture of the Korowai houses, well above flood-water levels, is a form of defensive fortification- to disrupt rival clans from capturing people(especially women and children) for slavery or cannibalism. The height and girth of the common ironwood stilts also serves to protect the house from arson.
