Indigenous, local and regional traditions: Views from ritual and ceremony

EXCERPT

How do traditional communities of particular localities continue to survive  and thrive in the face of what seems to be overwhelming pressures and  influences from the outside? Apart from the various material and political  challenges faced by these communities, equally challenging is the question of  the survival and continuity of traditional values and worldviews—no doubt  the material survival of the community is a basic need, it is the continuation  of traditional culture that vivifies the heart and soul of a community.  When we think about the resilience of a community, the continual viability  of its culture is a crucial factor; yet, surely it is not merely a question of its  preservation or conservation but one of creative adaptation.
