Amazon Headshrinkers

National Geographic is doing a special on Amazon "Headshrinkers" for Expedition Week. The Shuar people of the Amazon used a process to shrink the heads of their dead enemies to take vengeance. They show how the process may look in this video, but it is pretty gross. After the headshrinking ritual, the head is a fourth of its original size.
