Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"Ishi, The Last Yahi" chronicles the unforgettable story of Ishi, the last survivor of the Yahi tribe following extensive massacres of Native Americans in California in the 1860s and 1870s. Ishi and a handful of his tribe refused to surrender, choosing instead to live in hiding. After 40 years and the death of all the others, one day in 1911 Ishi, alone and near starvation, walked out of the wilderness and into the white man's world. Newspapers labeled him "the last wild Indian" or "the last Stone Age Man in North America," to the public he was an exotic curiosity, but for young anthropologist Alfred Kroeber, Ishi's appearance was a scientific windfall. Kroeber had been searching for years to find "wild uncontaminated Indians" who could document aboriginal life in America. Through Kroeber's invitation, Ishi left a jail cell and lived out the remaining four years of his life at the Museum of Anthropology in San Francisco, relating Yahi stories and demonstrating the traditional way of life he knew so well. His quiet dignity and extraordinary lack of bitterness towards the people who had destroyed his tribe greatly impressed everyone who met him.
