Cargo Cult Video

The name cargo cult refers to a religious practice shown in many traditional pre-industrial tribal societies, after having interacted with technologically advanced cultures. The primary goal of the cults is to obtain the material wealth (“cargo”) of the advanced culture by means of magic and religious rituals or practices. These cults believe that this wealth was a gift intended for them from their deities and ancestors. The cults developed primarily in remote parts of New Guinea and other Melanesian and Micronesian societies in the southwest Pacific Ocean after the first significant arrivals of Westerners in the 19th century and the behavior has been found in other cultures around the world.
