ISHI'S RETURN is about Ishi, billed in 1911 as the "last wild Indian" when he wandered out of the woods in Oroville, California, and became a national sensation. When Ishi died, his brain was removed and sent to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Eighty years later, his descendants in California fought to have his remains repatriated to his ancestral home. (Distributed by NETA) Ishi's Return Producer: Katahdin Productions
