"Survive the Tribe" is a reality series that airs on National Geographic Channel.

When it comes to enduring dense Amazonian jungle or the unrelenting Kalahari Desert sun, it isn't modern technology but ancient know-how that can mean the critical difference between life and death. Reading a single, broken blade of grass — echoing a subtle animal call — these are tribal survival skills refined over centuries and mastered over a lifetime. In places where survival depends on bonding with a majestic golden eagle or interpreting the movements of constantly shifting sea ice, it's time to leave domesticated life behind to "Survive the Tribe."

This series tracks wilderness guide and survival instructor Hazen Audel as he journeys to some of the world's most remote and inhospitable places, immersing himself into local cultures to learn survival skills that have kept tribal people alive against the odds for thousands of years. He has 10 days to study each tribe's skills before taking on the toughest tribal challenges that will force him to the very limit. In order to survive, Audel must rely on natural instinct, ancient wisdom and a high tolerance for drinking cow's blood.

Along the way, Audel experiences first hand the incredible perseverance, rugged beauty and amazing fortitude that only come from living on the edge. In this series, he must build shelters, construct weapons and forge metal using the skills imparted to him from tribal elders before joining traditional hunts that have been an integral part of the tribes' survival for generations.

In the Kalahari Desert, Audel joins an elite group of San Bushmen, hunting for game with bows and poison arrows. Braving sub-zero temperatures in Mongolia, Audel has only days to bond with a majestic golden eagle before tackling harsh mountains in search of prey for his Kazakh clan. And, embarking on an Inuit crash course in Arctic Canada, Audel must harvest for food beneath shifting sea ice while braving a barren landscape.

For Icon Films, executive producers are Harry Marshall and Laura Marshall, and the series producer is Nicholas White.
