Great for teaching

"I've used this video in the first week of introductory anthropology courses for several years and am really happy with it -- it concisely touches on a wide array of ethnographic material on topics like kinship, the division of labor, ritual, rites of passage, subsistence, indigenous peoples' relations to nation-states, and cultural and economic change. Most importantly, it breaks down the idea that change is a simple movement from "tradition" to "modernity," by focusing on two different Kayapo groups who are actively debating what it means to be Kayapo, & what kinds of change are acceptable. Nearly every concept that comes up in later weeks in the course can be illustrated with a reference to some aspect of this film, & students seem to remember it. Highly recommended."
