The Yanomami are considered the last intact indigenous culture in the Americas, a tribe little changed over thousands of years. But their way of life and their very existence are threatened by gold mining, development, and disease.

Yanomami: Keepers of the Flame documents an expedition by a group of journalists, anthropologists, and doctors who journeyed to the Venezuelan rainforest to visit with the Ashetoeateri Village, a Yanomami settlement never contacted by the outside world. Hosted by Michael Dorn of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
