The Sanema - changing settlement patterns
Historically, the Sanema moved from place to place within the rainforest. Over recent years, however, they have been forced to adopt a more sedentary lifestyle. This change has proven unpopular with at least some members of the tribe. This clip was first published as part of the BBC Tribe website: bbc.co.uk/tribe/index.shtml. Please note this clip is only available in Flash.
Useful in the context of a unit on cultural understanding and diversity or a study of people and their environment. Ask your learners to consider the reasons why the Sanema are so vulnerable to diseases brought in by outsiders.
