"Bread and circuses" (or bread and games; from Latin: panem et circenses) is metonymic for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the generation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace, as an offered "palliative." Its originator, Juvenal, used the phrase to decry the selfishness of common people and their neglect of wider concerns. The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the commoner. (From Wikipedia) See more
When the Indian warrior is going through his ritual, he is supposed to follow the Sun's path all day. At the end of the episode he is facing the same way he was at the beginning, not the opposite direction. You can tell this, because the same tree is visible in the distance in front of him to he right side of the screen. See more

It is good to make this sacrifice where the sun can look down and see you. It is a great privilege to dance with the sun. The sacrifice will be hard, but you are strong and brave. You will not give up, as I did not give up when my father brought me to this place. Follow the sun all day and pray. If you are strong and true, your sacrifice will be rewarded, and you will have a vision.
