Documentary filter: Heard of a film where a group of native people were let loose into the "modern" world with a camera?

Heard of a film where a group of native people were let loose into the "modern" world with a camera? Basically, their brief was to do in reverse, what the "modern" world has done to them with their "exploring social customs and quaint lifestyles" documentaries. Any idea of what documentary this is? My google-fu is failing me on this one. Thanks!

Channel 4's Meet the Natives fits the bill. If you're in the UK, it's on 4OD. I believe there may have been an American remake of it but I would recommend the British one: the people worshipped Prince Phillip as their God. At the end of the series, they got to meet him.

That was my post! You might also be thinking of Return of the Tribe, which follows a similar format but instead features the Swagap people of Papua New Guinea.

There's also the fairly well-known "Navajo Project" of Sol Worth. Clearly not the exact thing you were looking for, but potentially of interest, anyway.
