Abstract What can be learned from the lifestyles, customs, and ceremonies of tribal peoples as the millenium nears? This ten volume series aims to raise awareness and to stimulate thinking about the future by exploring the worldviews, values, and social systems shared by many tribal societies.

In Part 1, The Shock of the Other, host David Maybury-Lewis reflects on the idea of "the other" by visiting the Xavante tribe of Brazil and trekking deep into the Peruvian Amazon in search of the Mascho Piro, a tribe that shuns attention from and incorporation into the outside world.

Part 2, Strange Relations, focuses on various ways that different cultures organize their social relationships, especially marriage. How do cultures understand and monitor passion? Case studies include the polyandrous Nyinba society of Nepal; the Wadaabe of Niger, which allow two different kinds of marriages to coexist in one household; and a Canadian married couple, whose arrangement seems at least as strange as the others.

Part 3, Mistaken Identity, considers questions of personal identity by exploring how different cultures determine the boundaries and definitions of individuality, family, and community. Includes clips from a Brazilian Xavante initiation into manhood, the Indonesian Weyewa's understanding of death, and the familial relations of an abortion counselor.

Part 4, An Ecology of Mind, examines various attitudes toward nature as exemplified by the Gabra of northern Kenya, whose survival depends on their ability to relate to a harsh environment; the Makuna of Columbia, who express an exemplary environmental consciousness through their myths and rituals; and a western gardener, who seeks to cultivate a non-exploitative relationship with the earth.

Part 5, The Art of Living, raises questions about the relationship between art and life. In separating art from life, have we lost the ability to play? Explores the various ways that tribal peoples combine the artistic expression of the soul and the experiential expressions of the body in a physical world. Considers the grounded, physical aesthetics of the Wodaabe and the significance of dance in the life cycles of the Dogon, both West African tribes.

Part 6, Touching the Timeless, examines the role and forms of spirituality in various cultures, including the Huichol of Mexico, who travel three hundred miles to reach their sacred places, and the Gabra of Kenya, whose grazing practices have helped to prevent desertification.

Part 7, A Poor Man Shames Us All, raises questions about commodification. To what extent are things replacing people in modern society? Includes perspectives of a garbage collector from New York City; the president of BBDO Advertising, Phil Dusenberry, who heads the campaign for Pepsi; an Indonesian Weyewan man; and a young boy of the Gabra of Kenya.

Part 8, Inventing Reality, raises epistemological questions. How do different societies devise systems of knowledge based on science and/or magic? Examines the case of the Huichol Indians of Mexico, in which a doctor and a shaman seek to halt a fatal epidemic; the Austrialian Aboriginal view that humans shape reality; and a cancer patient's belief that she can alter her physical state by the powers of her own mind.

Part 9, The Tightrope of Power, questions of nationhood and statehood are posed by sampling a broad spectrum of cultures from tribal, stateless societies to contemporary Canada, where a major constitutional amendment was recently defeated by an Ojibwa-Cree member of Canada's parliament; and the Canadian army and a Mohawk community that stand head to head in Oka, Quebec.

Part 10, At the Threshold, asks the question, “what lies ahead in the new millennium?” Suggesting that wisdom, compassion, and family may be core values necessary for our future survival. David Maybury-Lewis considers these values as they are understood by the Xavante tribe in Brazil, the Navajo of the American Southwest, and other tribal cultures, and reflects on how these peoples have managed to feel at home wherever they find themselves.
