Culture Curiosity – Ted Talk
In the TED Talk video below National Geographic Explorer, Wade Davis, celebrates the diversity of the world’s indigenous cultures, which are disappearing from the planet at an alarming rate.
Wade attempts to enlighten us on why culture is so important and how culture affects our modern world today.
“The problem is that even those of us sympathetic with the plight of indigenous people view them as simple quaint and colorful but somehow reduce to the margins of history as the real world meaning our world moves on. Well, the truth is the 20th century 300 years from now is not gonna be remembered for its wars or its technological innovations but rather the error in which we stood by and neither actively endorsed or passively accepted the massive destruction of both biological cultural diversity on the planet.”
