an interesting fellow who was a painter and later on an anthropologist. once, he participated in ritualistic cannibalism. although this wasn't the main focus of his life, it's certainly the focus of the documentary he starred in.
i think one of the most outstanding features of his personality was his ability to nearly completely assimilate into the cultures he studied. and to do so very respectfully. he seemed to gain people's trust easily.
