Riddle Ye! III

Here’s another riddle to crack your head on. You may have heard this problem in another variant form.

A man is in a region where he knows there are two native tribes. One always tell the truth, and one always lie. He comes to a fork in the road, where a sign says “One path leads to certain death, the other to safety”. There’s a native tribesman sitting below the sign. What is the one question he can ask that will guarantee him safe passage?
