Invaders is what the white men were to the natives, who liked the trinkets they were given and had no inkling what they would have to give in return -- their lands, their gods, their lives. The survivors have been turned into exotic objects by Hollywood, television and tourism. As a modern-day analogue of white exploration and settlements centuries ago, this program tells of the Panara of Brazil, whose first contact with whites came in 1971; within four years, 90% of the native population had died, primarily from foreign diseases to which the Panara had no immunity - -statistics that mirror the continent-wide death rate of "Indians" in the 16th and 17th centuries.
