The Indonesian tribe that rejects technology | AJ Shorts

The Baduy tribe from Banten in Indonesia practice seclusion and reject all modern technology to protect their ancient traditions. For centuries their way of life hasn’t changed. Electricity is outlawed, along with modern modes of communication and formal education. Power lines stop at the border of their lands. But the outside world is creeping in. The tribe is split in two – the strict inner circle remains ‘pure’, while the outer circle has relaxed some rules. Some have started using mobile phones and solar-powered lanterns. Will adopting some aspects of modern technology help the Baduy survive the modern world, or will it destroy their ancient traditions?
