About this title

Synopsis:

This widely acclaimed volume gives voice and faith to the ongoing struggles of indigenous peoples throughout the world to defend their lands, their way of life, and their very existence against the onslaught of modern development. "A testament to the gifts of indigenous groups."--Smithsonian. 100 color photos.

From Booklist:

Davidson, who has long worked for Native Alaskans' rights, argues eloquently for help in their efforts to survive. Photographs, too, are well used; vivid close-ups capture confident maturity, the patience of long-time survivors, and healthy, open faces of children, with some choice panoramas of their environments. The text combines their testimony and views with Davidson's personal experiences and sharp criticism of callous superpowers and local governments. Many indigenous groups face extinction, some inevitably. Others have capable, articulate, and educated leaders who understand the hazardous, value-based choice to hold with their past as they work on their future. Confident they have something to teach money-oriented cultures about living in harmony with all things, they argue for saving endangered human cultures, too. Virginia Dwyer
