East Papua, Kimyal Tribe


The Kimyal Tribe live in the Eastern Highlands of  Papua, Indonesia.
They are sustenance farmers who were untouched by the outside world until
World Team missionaries Phil & Phyliss Masters brought the Gospel to their area in 1963.
Phil Masters was martyred in 1968 when he and fellow missionary
Stan Dale were killed and cannibalized by the Yale tribe.

Although most of the tribe still live in the stone age, the younger generation
have bridged the gap into the technological age. There are Kimyal students all over Indonesia
studying medicine, law, aviation, theology, etc.
