In 1969, the Surui people of the Brazilian Amazon had their first contact with industrialized civilization. The following years of disease, conflict and deforestation almost destroyed the tribe. But now, the tribe has found a powerful ally in their fight to preserve their culture and their home - the internet - where they map their territory, monitor illegal logging, and trade in carbon offsets. Chief Almir of the Surui indigenous group joins Worldview to tell his story of survival, travel and technology.
