Mimus Documentary Playing on Youtube


Mimus Documentary Playing on Youtube

Mimelandia, the new Harmonious Discourse Initiative (HDI) documentary studying the Mimus people of Mimelandia, is now playing on Youtube. The HDI staff, which is comprised of anthropologists, began studying the Mimus in 2009, and was the first to document and chronicle their lifestyle. ‘Mimelandia’ is intended to help the world better understand the culture, communication and language of the Mimus lifestyle.

The HDI staff hopes those who watch Mimelandia will discuss the lifestyle of the Mimus people, who were just recently discovered by the anthropology world. The Mimus people, who are incapable of speech and don’t have an oral history, believe in co-existence. The HDI hopes its study of the Mimus? communication, which is made solely through gestures, facial expressions, instruments and dance, will allow viewers to better understand how the they live, communicate and relate to the larger world community.

The HDI anthroplogists, who spoke to the Mimus people through music, hope to raise awareness about the similarities all people share, no matter what their background or culture is. They also want to help people better understand different races in an effort to resolve social injustice, conflict and discrimination. Mimelandia aims to show that the study of language helps people better understand local customs, beliefs and heritage.

The documentary also acts as a metaphor to how immigrants who haven’t assimilated to America’s social norms live. ‘Mimelandia’ also hopes to give those people “without a voice” the chance to be heard.

Check out the full-length documentary and the trailer at Mimelandia’s official website,, under the Mimelandia tab.
