Summary
How do tribal societies maintain social order and harmony without the vast legal and governmental institutions that we rely on? This program invites viewers to contrast the Western forms of state to the tribal practice of democracy through consensus. Travel to Canada to witness the struggles of the Objibwa-Cree and Mohawk tribes against the Canadian federal government. Understand how their visions of the world can help us refine our definitions of democracy, pluralism, and the state
