Tribe (known as Going Tribal in the United States) is a documentary television series produced by the BBC, in which the extreme explorer and former Royal Marine Bruce Parry scours the globe in search of ancient tribes.
HORSE MASTERS OF MONGOLIA
Bruce travels to Mongolia to meet the nomadic Darhad people. The family he stays with follows a tradition of herding through steep valleys to find grazing for their cattle, sheep and horses, which has continued for centuries. And they also have satellite TV. But with no roads, horseback is the best way to travel, and though Bruce has never ridden, he is soon coming to grips with a new mount -- at least until he loses it.
DANGEROUS GAME: THE SURI
Bruce Parry goes to live with the Suri tribe of southwest Ethiopia and takes part in the fierce stick fights that are at the heart of Suri culture. These fights, called donga, have traditionally been used to settle scores between villages, and to keep order. But the system is increasingly threatened by the invasion of guns. No longer are the elders looked to for permission that a donga can take place -- with a bullet, retribution can be swift, and fatal.
LIVING WITH CANNIBALS
Bruce is deep in unexplored jungle as he travels to West Papua to meet a tribe rumored to be cannibals. The Kombai people are hunter-gatherers, with no history of living in villages, and still use stone tools. They're not bad with bow and arrow either, as Bruce discovers when he is suddenly surrounded by locals, all with arrow tips pointing at him.
AFRICAN VISION QUEST
Bruce faces one of his toughest tests as he is inducted into Bwiti, a rainforest religion practiced by the Babongo people of Gabon. He's right to be worried -- on occasion the ritual, which involves consuming an overdose of a powerful hallucinogenic, iboga, has proved fatal. This dramatic episode follows Bruce's build-up to the ceremony, as he goes hunting, collecting forest honey and spends time getting to know his new friends, before they judge the time is right for his "rebirthing" ritual.
LOST TRIBE: THE ADIS
Bruce spends four weeks with the Adi people, who live in Arunachal Pradesh in the Himalayas, a remote corner of India. As well as participating in sacrificial ceremonies with the tribe of former warriors who were cut off from civilization for centuries, Parry tries the local delicacies: the flesh of the prized "toilet pigs" and "rat cake."
WAKING THE SPIRITS
Bruce learns the secrets of the spirits when he joins the Sanema, a group of indigenous people who live in the Upper Caura region of Venezuela, to discover the strange dual-reality world in which they live. The Sanema believe spirits dwell in everything -- the river, the rocks and the animals around them -- in a world as real to them as the jungle they live in. And their shamans can commune with such spirits through the use of hallucinogenic snuff. Now Bruce faces the task of training as a shaman to get an insight into their experiences.
Return to Africa
Bruce returns to southwest Ethiopia to visit the Suri tribe, his hosts during Season 1. After an emotional reunion with old friends, Bruce announces his intention to travel south through the Omo Valley to visit the Nyangatom people, arch enemies of the Suri. The Nyangatom, also known as the Bume, are one of the most feared Omo tribes. To truly become one of the Nyangatom, Bruce must prove himself and become a member of the Ibex -- the warrior class.
Rites of Passage: The Hamar
Bruce visits the Hamar people, who live in the fertile hills of southwest Ethiopia. Their culture is rich, too, and the tribe is known for its spectacular celebrations, dancing and adornments. The tribe invites Bruce to participate in a male initiation ceremony. If he successfully runs and jumps over the backs of cattle four times, he will be considered a Hamar man and able to marry. Bruce lives with another initiate and his family as they get ready for the ceremony. With two weeks until the jump, he has a lot to learn and little time to practice if he is to pass this test of nerve and athletic skill.
Bruce arrives at the shores of Lake Turkana, in Ethiopia's Omo Valley. This area is home to the Dassanech fishermen. Unlike the other groups of the valley, the Dassanech don't live as cattle herders. They fish for giant Nile perch and hunt crocodile and hippo in the lake and river delta. Bruce is adopted as a son by the charismatic Abranetch. She is central to village life and to Bruce's time with the Dassanech. He is introduced to their different clans, amongst them the rainmaker, scorpion and crocodile peoples. Bruce joins them in the deadly business of hunting huge crocodiles with a wooden harpoon.
