Beyond Borders [electronic resource]

The Hadzabe were forced off the Serengeti when it became a conservation area in the 1950s and have been forbidden to hunt there ever since. When filmmaker Paula Palacios brings chief D'anny and best hunter" Tanu to visit Serengeti National Park the men are awed by the abundant game their fathers had been free to pursue, and frustrated that the Hadzabe are now relegated to inferior lands. This program provides an intimate look at how two tribal leaders respond to both threatening and attractive aspects of 21st century life, even as they insist on retaining Hadzabe ways.

Many Moons Away From Home [electronic resource]

After filmmaker Paula Palacios hears that the Hadzabe named a new baby in her honor she journeys from her home in France to celebrate with them in Tanzania, and to continue her documentation of their hunter-gatherer society. This program captures Palacios' month-long stay among the Hadzabe and her exploration of modern threats to their community. Palacios accompanies the men on a hunt for meat for the baby-naming feast, but the encroachment of farmland has made large animals scarce. In this case, adherence to Hadzabe custom has devastating effects on the tribe's women and children.

Hadzabe [electronic resource]: The Forgotten Tribe

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.
