The Third WayStreaming Video - 2014
Remote tribes around the world are struggling to adapt to the intrusions of the Western civilization. Their survival depends on finding a compromise between traditional and modern ways of life. Romanian anthropologist, Sebastian Tirtirau, has dedicated his life to visiting different tribes and pioneering a 'Third Way' of contact. Unlike previous forms of contact-which meant either dominating and conquering them or simply abandoning the tribes to their problems-Sebastian works with the indigenous people to help build the kind of future they want. Of all the tribes Sebastian has worked with, the Nafe tribes in Vanuatu are the only ones who have managed to find a way of living according to their traditions while being open to accept what is useful from the West. What is the secret to their success?
