Isolated Tribes

Producer: Barbara Dury
In this co-production with American Experience, Scott Wallace, associate professor of journalism at the University of Connecticut and author of The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon’s Last Uncontacted Tribes, talks about the ever-shrinking world for the indigenous people who have chosen to live with limited or no contact with the outside world.
