The Forgotten Tribe

Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
The Hadzabe tribe of Tanzania, located a short 30 miles from Olduvai Gorge, still live much as their ancestors did tens of thousands of years ago. In recent decades they have successfully resisted attempts by the government to pastoralize them and by missionaries to baptize them, and continue on with their age-old nomadic lifestyle, despite the toll taken by loss of hunting grounds and rising alcoholism. Filmmaker Paula Palacios provides a window on today's indigenous peoples as chief D'anny and others share hunting, foraging, and childbirth customs and recount unsuccessful efforts by administrative agencies to modernize their tribe.
