Broadcast on PBS November 2002. Deep in the lower Amazon Basin lies the Xingu National Park. This remote 9,000 square mile region is one of the last refuges of endangered native Brazilian Indian tribes. They live a life full of joy, simplicity and in harmony with nature. As with many indigenous groups, the Xingu's home and traditional lifestyle is slowly disappearing. Through Brazil's top anthropologist, Joao Americo Peret, and the Xingu's own Shaman Sapain Kamayurah, "Xingu: a Personal Voyage" provides a detailed and personal portrait of these people. Historical accuracy, interwoven with the complex mythological structure of this society, brings to life the story of a remarkably resilient yet wonderfully innocent culture.
