I'm a psychology major and I would love to barter for a shrunken head if I could still come back with my own.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. Could you please clarify? – JoErNanO Apr 19 '16 at 10:03

    @JoErNanO it seems that the OP is looking for a guide to take him to the Jivaro headhunting tribe in Peru. The OP is inserting some comedy into the question suggesting that the tribe might take his own head if he's not with a suitable guide. – Jarede Apr 19 '16 at 10:14

    Is it legal for ordinary individuals to import human heads from other countries? – Andrew Grimm Apr 19 '16 at 12:46

    @JoErNanO erm, both, clearly... "I would love to barter for a shrunken head if I could still come back with my own"... really not seeing where the reading comprehension problem is here! (p.s. I suspect the "buying a shrunken head" comment is a rather lighthearted request and they're more interested in generally seeing the culture - I'm trusting they're aware that customs in most countries tend not to be too keen on human head imports) – user56reinstatemonica8 Apr 19 '16 at 13:38

    @AndrewGrimm On a trip to Borneo some years back I asked a customs guy (Canadian) about the procedures, mostly out of curiosity. Human remains have quite a few regulations and they would have be assured that the original owner of the relic was not a victim of criminal activity. Since that time, trade in parts such as human skeletons from India has become less free. – Spehro Pefhany Jun 24 '16 at 20:44
