Episode Summary

While hunting for relics in South America, host Ian Grant discovers one of the most ethnically diverse, yet least explored countries in the world – Suriname. As he traces Suriname's fascinating history, he discovers a strange brew of African, Asian, European and native Amerindian cultures. Traveling deep into the jungle, Ian witnesses two ancient rituals never before caught on tape - a Javanese trance dance, and a Winti ceremony. He also negotiates for a traditional Apinti "talking" drum as well as a hand-carved paddle made by the Maroons, descendents of runaway slaves.moreless
