PAPUA NEW GUINEA -- MARCH 11, 2009: A Meakambut man peels the bark of a fallen Sago palm tree. Sago pancakes are Meakambuts primary source of food. The men peel the bark away from the tree, revealing the pith inside which is gathered by the women, then washed and strained, so that the starch runs out and collects in a paste type flour which they will cook into a flat bread.
