Summary
Mountains of gold is a unique chronicle of a nomadic, hunter/gatherer society undergoing the profound change to a money economy over a ten-year period. Unlike what happened in many tribal societies, the Ipini of Papua New Guinea did not allow themselves to be exploited. This tribe was first discovered by Australian explorers in 1938. Original footage shows their amazement at seeing their "white ancestors" in their midst. This program follows the dynamic of cultural change as it occurred in this former Stone Age society
