Deep inside the Brazilian and Ecuadorian rain forests, several indigenous tribes continue to live according to traditional customs-some violently defying outside influences. This program documents repeated attempts to pacify and often assimilate these vulnerable societies. Outlining the history of Amazonian colonization by Europeans, the film examines the work of researchers and activists such as Erwin Patzelt and the Villas Boas brothers, as well as the role of FUNAI, the impact of multinational corporations, and the influence of Christian missionaries. Viewers will learn extensive details about the Huaorani people, the Kampaere and Anticume Pata communities, and various Xingu tribes.
