Meet the last members of Bolivia's disappearing indigenous tribe

Two hundred years ago, the Pacahuara tribe was one of the main indigenous groups in Bolivia.

But in a few years their language and culture could vanish forever as the last members of the tribe die out without having passed their knowledge on to a new generation.

The BBC travelled to their village in a remote area of the northeast of the country to talk to the remaining members of the tribe.

Laura Plitt reports.
