First encounter with a white man

The following footage shows a a rare "encounter" of its own kind when a team of photographers went into a land never visited before by a white man. The video was shot somewhere in 1976 in the remote areas of Papua New Guinea. The hesitancy and the expressions on the people is clearly visible and reflects a strange war going in their minds as what to do.

See the video and wonder what happens when a different species walks into another species' abode. I only wonder if the white man later spared these people to live as they had continued to live before or moved in with force to destroy their traditions, culture and customs and looted their natural trove.
