Episode Details

Exploring another island of the Vanuatu archipelago, we come to the island of Tanna. The island is divided between two villages, the Sea People and the Earth People. In a land steeped in ancient magical traditions a yearly exchange between the villages is performed in order to keep harmony and balance on the island.

Young Vehuk is about to succeed his father, Missiwaren as chief of the Sea People. His task is to conduct this exchange. First, he must learn the power of the Magic Stones, how they influence the sea animals and even his own future. We follow along with Vehuk in his elaborate quest to obtain the turtle and bring it, alive, to the Earth People in exchange for a quality pig.
