Abstract:

"In 1800 there were 300,000 Native Americans living in California; by 1900 only 20,000 remained. Of the thousands who witnessed this slaughter, it was thought that none remained wild, until the day in 1911 when the man they called 'Ishi' was captured raiding a slaughterhouse. Dr. Kroeber and his wife Henriette discover that Ishi is the last survivor of the Yahi tribe. In his head, he carries the secrets of his people, how they lived and died. These are secrets no white man knows, but Dr. Kroeber makes it his mission to uncover them before the last of the Yahi is gone forever"--DVD sleeve.
