Today in our lives were are constantly using electricity and technology.  It is considered an essential part of our life.  However, there is a tribe in Indonesia called the Baduy tribe that live their everyday lives without any form of technology or electricity. They believe that if they start using technology it will interfere with their sacred traditions and the way of life that they have preserved for hundreds of years. Even though technology is technically outlawed in the Baduy tribe the outer circle of the tribe has loosened their rules on technology and have allowed for people to own a mobile phone, watch TV, but not own it, and have solar powered lights because it uses nature.  While most of the tribe that is considered the outer circle use some technology, mostly to be able to communicate with other people, the smaller group of people called the inner circle, still have strict rules about no technology.  Because the inner circle does not want to adopt technology, they are stuck with problem of whether to preserve their traditions or try to keep up with the outside world.
