The Tribal Eye
Episode Six

Man Blong Custom

David Attenborough's program takes us on a perilous journey to the jungle-covered mountains of the New Hebrides to witness the sacred ceremonies performed in the village cult house. Life size effigies, the heads of which are human skulls fleshed out with clay, dance as cavorting puppets in funeral ceremonies. Then we journey to the neighboring Solomon Islands and examine their magnificent war canoes, their sea spirit dances, and an anthropological phenomenon, Moro.
This island mystic arose to say that the gods of the island wished the people to send the foreign Christians back home and once again worship the ancients.
