2018 Live Q&A from Yanomami village to the world via satellite phone

In 2018, I had coordinated a live Q&A from my Yanomami village via satellite phone. Hosted by Northampton Community College of Pennsylvania, we were able to field questions in real time in the field. This was my first time and I enjoyed every minute! It was a bit tough as the scorching sun overheated my camera which had constantly shut off. All in all, it was an amazing experience. I hope to do this for years to come. Enjoy!
