abstract
Linguist/anthropologist Ian Mackenzie has spent years documenting the language and culture of the Penan tribe of Borneo, Malaysia, possibly the last truly nomadic society on earth. Andrew Gregg follows him as he attempts to track down the last remaining nomadic band of Penan whose traditional way of life is threatened by loss of habitat due to logging in Sarawak.
