Sooo many conflicting thoughts about this video -- marvelous and disturbing at the same time. Introduction of white man disease was one of the
negatives, to be sure. Another was it was all one-sided. The white guys showing off their shiny trinkets, gizmos and toys, but learning nothing
from the natives who obviously know the lay and ways of the land like the back of their hands. Typical.
About the head slapping -- that was funny and intriguing to watch. I could relate it to two things in our own experience -- we slap ourselves on the
head with an "ah-hah" kind of moment, don't we? It could be related; on the other hand if the stuff was sugar as someone suggested, and not rice,
then it might have been like an "ooooooooooooooh no, toooooooo sweet" kind of thing; especially considering they are not used to highly refined
sweetness made with toxic chemicals (you knew that didn't you?).
Whatever it was, it was cool. I agree that they were handsome people. It is so sad that disease, alcohol and corruption have been the outcome of
our contact with them.
