This episode visits the hill tribes of northern Thailand, near the border of Myanmar. That’s where the Akha live, and among the Akha there are spirit women. They have a special fight on their hands – they’re trying to keep Christian groups from converting them and taking them down to the valleys below where they’ll lose their identity and their culture. It’s a very special fight because the Akha have been living a unique existence for the last 2,000 years, and the spirit women don’t want them to lose it.
