A cargo cult is a religious practice in Melanesia. It focuses on obtaining the “cargo” (material wealth) from the Western World through magic and religious rituals and practices. Cargo cult followers believe that the cargo was destined to them by their ancestors, but crafty Western people unfairly took possession of it.
