The only thing I could venture to guess is this: Have you seen the prices of clothes at the main American and European clothing stores? That alone would have caused nudism to be widespread. $50 per shirt, $1,000 for a suit. That is a start toward nudism!

There were quite a few areas of traditional nudism in Africa before the modern communications revolution. In many areas, social nudism was quite acceptable up to puberty, often until the age when boys were ritually circumcised and the girls were ritually infibulated.
Those areas where tribes practiced social nudity a few generations ago were, unfortunately, in just those regions where the ongoing endemic civil wars have hit the hardest in the past 50 years, such as parts of the Sudan, Ethiopia, and the Congo. All the local cultural patterns have been greatly disrupted and masny destroyed by this, and also by the spread of Islamic nudity taboos.
The spread of modern culture and the mass mixing of many ethnic groups, particularly as cities grow are having a profound impact on many older traditions. This was a very perceptive question here.

I have heard before that for some of the documentories, clothes are actually given to the people in the tribes to wear so that the footage can be shown here in the textile world. Also, missionaries move into some of these remote areas and 'civilize' these tribes and bring them clothes to wear.

did any of you see that show on the travel channel, about the two british guys who spent 3 months living with the Kombai tribe in West Papua? it was pretty interesting, and i was a little surprised at how much they showed in that show...although, there was a warning given at the beginning and during some commercial breaks, that the show contained "indigenous nudity"

I recall seeing on the TV series "The Long Way Down" here in the UK that many of the tribes that Ewen McGregor and Charlie Boorman met DEFIFNATLY must have been influenced by weasteners or given clothes to wear for TV. I highly doubt that nomadic african tribes would have suddenly obtained polo shirst and nike baseball caps on their own -.-'.

We take for granted we know the whole story. We judge a book by it's cover and read what we want, between selected lines!

agmetal, I think that the series you were referring to was "Mark and Olly: Living with the Mek/ Machigenga", or something like that.
Another Travel Channel show that shows nudity within a tribal setting is "Tribal Odyssey"
