Still image from The Pied Piper Of Eyasi

Part of the "Life on the Edge" series. The Hadza in Tanzania are one of the very last tribes of hunter-gatherers on earth, and their lifestyle may soon be over because of the pressures of globalization. Traditionally, they hunt game with bows and poisoned arrows, and they also gather fruits and wild honey in the strikingly beautiful area around Lake Eyasi in Tanzania. Recently they have been increasingly threatened by neighboring tribes, scarcity of wild game, and polluted water. For 70 years the Tanzanian government has tried to force the Hadza to integrate into mainstream society. Now tribesmen are being arrested and jailed for poaching on land coveted by rich hunting businesses. And in 2008 they came closer to being evicted from their homeland altogether. The Hadza have no traditional sense of hierarchy and no leaders, but now they believe they must find a voice to make themselves heard. Meet Baalow, a young Hadza hunter who is championing the Hadza cause. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
