Introduction / History
Most Tause people are lowland hunters and gatherers. At an altitude of 100-500 meters above sea level the Tause people can best be accessed by airplane or river. There is an airstrip between Wapoga and Otodemo.

The people eat vegetables and hunt wild game. Conflicts are often resolved by fighting. The Tause people have no gospel cassettes, films, nor videos in their language.

The Tause are sometimes known as the Doa, Darha people but they prefer to be called Tause. Weirate and Deirate are two dialects of the Tause language. Most of the Tause people are monolingual. The Tause language is part of the West Tarike language family.
