A Struggle to Survive.
Indigenous peoples around the world today face a range of dire challenges. The effects of climate change, environmental depredation and resource scarcity, technological change, and political and social pressure to assimilate to dominant modes of living, working, and worshiping threaten to obliterate their cultural traditions. The men, women, and children in these photographs stand at a threshold, pushing against and sometimes joining the forces of “progress” that would extinguish their unique ways of being human, or turn them into commodities to be sold on the global market. Looking into the eyes of these people, one is struck by the tranquility and self-possession with which they confront the upheaval of our world.
