There’s some­thing equally shock­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing about the lives of tribes­men, and this se­ries con­tin­ues to take us to the heart of the world’s most prim­i­tive tribes as women im­merse them­selves in the cul­ture in an ex­per­i­ment to see whether ‘West is best’. Tonight, teacher and life coach Dionne Bra­ham, 33, lives and learns from the women of the Ma­sai. They are polyg­a­mous, prac­tise fe­male cir­cum­ci­sion, and shave their heads and scar their faces as signs of beauty. the gap be­tween the Co­mancheros and Ban­di­dos is ir­re­triev­able, and when Jock is knocked off his bike by a truck trail­ing him at night, the pow­der keg ig­nites.

The Ban­di­dos club­house is shot up, and a bar fight is Sn­oddy’s re­tal­i­a­tion against the Co­mancheros. Jock de­clares war on the Ban­di­dos, and Sn­oddy calls com­pul­sory at­ten­dance at a swap meet at Milperra – to bash the Co­mancheros and take their colours.
