The No-Nonsense Guide to Indigenous Peoples, 2nd Edition
Written by Lotte Hughes.
Published in Canada by New Internationalist Publications Ltd. and Between the Lines, 2012.
|This guide looks beyond the exotic images tracing the story of
different indigenous people from their first contact with explorers and
colonizers to the present day. Much of this story is told by the indigenous
people themselves and they present the issues behind the challenge to give them
their own space in their own lands.
The last decade has seen indigenous peoples claim new relevance and respect there is a new UN Declaration on their rights, and indigenous groups have won political influence in Latin American and political power in the shape of Bolivia's President Evo Morales.
Environmental campaigners, meanwhile, are increasingly recognizing that indigenous peoples are not only key allies but are also often in the vanguard of defending natural resources from exploitation by transnationals and governments the real story behind the Avatar fable.
This updated edition of The No-Nonsense Guide to Indigenous Peoples shatters the myths, zooms in on the hotspots, and shows how indigenous peoples have moved to centre stage.
