Introduction / History
The Atohwaim people gather food from the forest, hunt, fish, and plant gardens. Their main food is sago with the other foods serving as side dishes. Drinking water is obtained from wells or rain. Their homes are built on stilts with split palm floors and plaited palm leaf roofs. There are no health clinics in the area and the nearest health worker is in the district capital. Malaria, tuberculosis, diaria, and skin diseases are common in the area. Neither telephones nor electric service has reached this area yet. The best way to reach the Atohwaim villages is by motorized or dugout boat on the Kronkel River. It is about 1 hour to reach the 2 main Atohwaim villages from the District capital of Kamur.
