I’m completely fascinated and awestruck by traditional indigenous ways of life untouched by colonialism.
Fascinated because of the sophistication that went totally unnoticed by missionaries and colonists blinded by their own cultural values and ideas. Awestruck because the levels of ingenuity, to adapt and thrive in harmony within harsh environments, is so incredible to witness.
Modern society wonders how people can live completely naked all the time without the moral fabric of society collapsing. Indigenous societies provide some answers. We may not agree with some aspects of their social agreements, based on our cultural mores. They’re not unknown or unheard of however. It’s also obvious that they work.
Here is a series I watched recently. An amazing 50 minute documentary in five ten minute parts. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
