“Wisdom from Strangers” – Ted Talk

Meet Dan Everett, author of Don’t Sleep, There Are Snakes, a failed missionary to the Pirahas, a tribe in the Amazon Basin who converted him to their way of thinking. In this Ted Talk, as he relates his experiences with the Pirahas, he shows his listeners how much you can learn from people who do not share your cultural assumptions, do not look like you, do not speak your language, do not believe as you do.
