It's a great beginning and I'll watch the rest but my first question is why does the guy assume that the tribe understands a hand shake?
It's a European custom that spread to N. America and he's holding out his hand to a tribe that has never even heard of Europe. Funny.

Actually if you keep on reading into the comment section, he does give plenty of sources...but they are all in French, so I can't exactly say for a fact that they are legit...in fact he brings up at least one possible problem with the 'hoax' Idea, and seems to waver a bit himself on whether or not it may have been real....I comment a bit more on this in another reply, and I do admit that I was a bit hasty calling it 'proof positive'.
Still though....I'm not buying it....My first impression (which generally is right, but I don't listen to often enough) felt it was fishy) I dismissed it at first, and started believing it....but after some more thought I think I'm more skeptical than ever (again...find the other replies I wrote if you'd like...I go into a bit more detail there, about why I'm not buying it)

This is an amazing video! I can't believe this was filmed the year I was born and I have never seen it. I'm sure this has been posted before, but please for those of us who have never seen it.. don't kick it to the curb. I wondered as I watched this if this is how American Indians reacted to "The White Man" when they first met? I know the history books are full of tall tales...and this made me believe "The White Man" did in FACT cause the hostilities between us and the American Indian. I am a white man, and I mean no racism in anything I post...it just made me wonder.
P.S. It is almost 15 minutes long...but well worth the view
