A farewell to the Suri tribe
The explorer Bruce Parry prepares to leave the Suri tribe. He bids farewell to the komoru, the spiritual leader of the Suri, who welcomed him to the tribe when he first arrived. The komoru reflects on Bruce's stay and asks him to remember his time with the Suri. This clip was first published as part of the BBC Tribe website: bbc.co.uk/tribe/index.shtml.

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 relative advantages and disadvantages of life as a member of the Suri people.
