“The best life for us is in the village – it’s how we’ve lived for many years, it’s what we know. In the city, we cannot survive.”

People like Mr. Kataparo are caught between the allure of modern life and a desire to save his traditional culture,

“It scares me a lot. I would prefer to die before the traditions of my people finish.”
