This ForaTV program title caught my attention on a busy day. It runs a little more than an hour, so I watched in dribbles, although it was difficult to tear myself away. Very soon, I'll go back and watch the video in one piece. Davis has captured the mystery, magic and cultural wonder which eludes those who are unable to witness this other than vicariously.
And, last week's news brought the obit of the last speaker of an ancient tribal language who died in the Andaman Islands thereby breaking a 65,000-year link to one of the world's oldest cultures.
If you watch the video, in whole or part, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
