Description

Instead of skinning game, Batek burn off the hair and cook the skin with the meat. Here two men are scraping singed hair off a leaf monkey with a stick. Then they will gut it and roast the carcass over the fire. Finally, they will butcher it and distribute portions to all families in camp. Batek share all food if needed, but they make a special point to share meat, which they obtain less regularly than vegetable foods.
