The book vividly described the culture of the Sawi tribe and I realized that there was a huge gap between the culture of the Sawi and the culture of our world. The modern standards in our society view Cannibalism and polygamy as immoral but to them, it was part of their culture. My initial response to the Sawi’s “cultural” rituals was that these tribes are lawless society who does not have any principles that they abide by. However, as Don Richardson further explained the Sawi, I came to a conclusion that it was their oppressive environment filled with betraying cultures that made those practices a norm for their society. For instance, the concept of “feeding with friendship and consuming at the end” was typical concept that Sawi lived by; in fact, they praised those who betrays others. Thus, nobody could truly believe anyone with sincerity. On the other hand, our society enables us to entrust other people more openly. The surprising but relieving factor that Don Richardson mentioned was that although the Sawi cultures who are adopted in these treacherous and savage environments also had rules that they abide by. Apparent example of how Sawi adhered to their principles is portrayed in the exchange of peace child among the tribes. The Peace child symbolizes the ultimate peace among the tribes, and after the exchange of peace child, the qurrael and disputes that frequently led tribes to the verge of war submerged and each tribe kept their words by keeping harmony with each other. To me, this was relieving factor because it suggests that Sawi does follow rules once they accept them, which means that there is a greater possibility that they could accept “modern” society’s standards. Don Richardson successfully converting few Sawi people into Christianity is a living proof that Sawi abide by rules. Although, the process of Don Richardson trying to provide appropriate example of describing who the God is using Sawi culture, once the people accepted those “translation” of God into Sawi culture, they had faith in God. With their strong faith, they were able to build temples, a place to serve God.
