We’re excited to announce the release of Episode 7 of the Blast From My Past podcast! This episode, “Tribal Quest,” veers off the beaten path in more ways than one. While previous episodes explored stories of individuals whose lives were changed by discoveries they made, this one focuses on the experiences of MyHeritage employees participating in the Tribal Quest project to help remote indigenous communities preserve their family history.
When Nitay Elboym, Golan Levi, and Noa Gabbay were hired by MyHeritage, canoeing down a river full of crocodiles in the heart of the Amazon jungle was not in the job description! Listen to the full episode below to follow their adventures, misadventures, and deeply moving experiences working with indigenous tribes:
Tribal Quest is a pro bono initiative to document the family histories and cultural traditions of remote indigenous tribes throughout the globe. This episode follows the most recent trip in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, but our employees have also visited the stark tundras of Siberia, the scorching savannahs of Namibia, and the lush jungles of Papua New Guinea to help remote communities preserve their family stories, legends, and traditions for future generations. As globalization and environmental changes threaten these communities’ traditional way of life, it is more important than ever to ensure that their legacies will not be lost or forgotten.
