The Vanishing Tribes are the most vulnerable peoples on the planet. We know very little about them. But we do know there are only and handful left around the world.
All these tribal people face catastrophe unless their culture and land is protected. These peoples are the best guardians of the natural world, and evidence proves that tribal territories are the best barrier to deforestation.
Richard Bangs is on a quest to document these vanishing tribes, showing the world their importance to preserve their traditions & culture.
At this week's COED METal Richard will share his experiences & stories of these hidden tribes.
