From Moving Images of the Pacific Islands
This documentary brings home the daily struggles of the Huli. Over the past 50 years, the Huli have made radical changes in their ways of life. However some Huli practices still persist, such as brideprice. The government strongly encourages the Huli to maintain their traditional customs, and a valuable tourist trade has developed around it. The Huli have not seen the benefit of this trade, but they recognize the importance of protecting their threatened culture.
