The Story Of Tippi Degré: The Girl Who Was Raised In The Jungle

Part of the Tribe

Tippy was immediately accepted by the children in the local tribe. “When we came to a village with African children, within two minutes, Tippi was the clown, and people found her so cute,” Sylvia said.

Her mother goes on to describe how tolerant and accepting all the children were and how much they enjoyed being around Tippi. The kids in the tribe were particularly fascinated by her hair. Unfortunately, Tippy never found that same love and acceptance when it was time to leave the jungle and move back to Europe.
