Review of "Prisoners of a White God"
The Akha Way
Assistant Professor in Anthropology and Botany
For a thousand years, the Akha people have inhabited the hills of Asia--mainly Southern China, Burma and Northern Thailand. The Akha Way, or Akhazaunh, is the code by which they live. This documentary describes their origins and their culture. It contains extraordinary footage of a shaman healing ceremony; a funeral, with the ritual sacrifice of a water buffalo; the reading of a pig's liver after a new house is built, and more.
Today the Akha Way is in danger of disappearing. The program shows how forced migration, Christianity, money and drugs are eroding the cultural heritage of the Akha tribe.
