Default Things someone might be tempted to show a Na'vi...

...if they suddenly became a Na'vi tribesperson, steeped in their language and culture, but with all of their memories of Earth intact.

1. Agriculture.

2. How to make bronze.

3. What happens if you combine sulphur, saltpetre and charcoal in the right proportions.

A little show called Firefly...
The internet. Think about it, queue + Eywa network + internet = One potent mix (I hate myself for saying that)

I'd introduce them to Varg Vikernes. I honestly think that he would be interested in meeting the Na'vi and I think they'd have a lot of interesting conversations.

These have to be things that you could show them (but probably shouldn't) if you had no connection to Earth technology or culture except for your memories.

Probably fireworks, or astronomy. Maybe if I had the tools to make some boards, I'd show them surfing.

Like others have already said, probably astronomy. Just imagine the look on their faces after explaining how big the known universe is.

Cool idea. It'd be interesting to tell them just how old the universe is, as well. Much older than the time of the first songs... do we know anything about Na'vi creation mythology? Can't remember anything offhand.

Well, let's see what I could make in my limits...

1. Explosives. Come on, they're on a dangerous planet. They need it.

2. Philosophy. Interesting subject for anyone.

3. The many uses of fire. On Earth, nearly everything we have was connected to fire somewhere in it's construction process. Plus, fire dancing is really cool.

An iPod.

Imagine them being able to hear all the music mankind has made since our first songs...

I wouldn't want to ruin what the Na'vi have.

Think about that. You start giving them ipods and agriculture, next it's offices and shopping centres. Do you want to do that?

Devourment, interesting one... I've read a lot of what he's written and I think that philosophically, there is certainly a big overlap... I appreciate anyone who can look past the media stereotyping and his history to what he actually says without (usually deliberately) misinterpreting it.

Yeah, don't get me wrong, I understand that... I was just going on the word 'tempted'. It's kind of a "I doubt I actually would, but if I had to..." kind of thing.

Music. I wouldn't show them too much because I wouldn't want to spoil their culture.
