The Sawi or Sawuy are a tribal people of Western New Guinea, Indonesia. They were known to be cannibalistic headhunters as recently as the 1950s. They speak the Sawi language, which belongs to the Trans-New Guinea language family. Since then, many of the tribe have converted to Christianity and the world's largest circular building made strictly from un-milled poles was constructed in 1972 as a Christian meeting place by the Sawi. Christian missionary Don Richardson who lived among the Sawi wrote a book about the experience called Peace Child.

dbo:abstract
  • Die Sawi (auch Sawuy) sind ein Volksstamm der Papua in Westneuguinea, Indonesien. Bis in die 1960er Jahre lebten die Sawi als kannibalische Kopfjäger und ohne Berührung zur Zivilisation. 1962 kam das Missionsehepaar Don und Carol Richardson zu diesem Volksstamm und lebte 15 Jahre unter ihnen. Festgehalten sind die Erfahrungen in Don Richardsons Buch Peace Child. Seither konvertierten viele Stammesangehörige zum Christentum, wobei im Übrigen animistisch geprägte, spirituelle Vorstellungen vorherrschen. Die Sprache der Sawi gehört zum Transneuguinea-Hauptzweig (TNG) und dabei zur Awyu–Dumut-Sprachfamilie, die in den (süd)östlichen Regionen Westneuguineas gesprochen wird. (de)
