Not sure how to channel all the passion you feel for Avatar? Take a cue from a blue-skinned tribe living right here in the USA. Described by one Newser user as “a disturbingly funny video of the Na'vi people of Hometree, Wis.,” the video shows the group in its natural habitat, engaging in activities like running through the forest, planting flowers, practicing archery, drinking coffee, and participating in a ceremony at the “tree of souls.”

“I feel comfortable like this, I feel like this is my real skin, you know, and this is who I am,” says Douglas “Eytukan” Murphy. “So I don’t have to be ashamed of it, like a Chinese person shouldn’t be ashamed of being Chinese.”
