Summary:  There are almost 200 million people scattered across the world who belong to tribal religions that are local, exclusive and frequently animist – i.e., they believe that inanimate objects and natural phenomena possess a soul. Though no single group can be chosen as typical, this episode is devoted to primal religion-that of the Torajas who live in a mountain fortress on an Indonesian island.
