Tribal Affairs

tribal affairs

Tribal Affairs combines footage of a group of Germans participating in ‘powwows’ where they dress in traditional North American indigenous clothing, dance and chant together with comments from two women from the group Medzeniakonai who view the recorded scenes. The women wonder if these people would accept them as their spiritual mentors and be allies in finding solutions to global environmental problems.
