About this product
- DescriptionOver the last two decades the indigeus movement has grown into an international force, forcing organizations such as the United Nations and the International Labour Organisation to take tice of its concerns. For the Arakmbut people, this increasing consciousness has enabled them to successfully resist the encroachment of Western civilisation, including the exploitation of their land for gold mining. Gray argues, however, that their struggle should t be viewed simply as a legal and political one. The Arakmbut derive their legitimacy from the spiritual world rather than the judicial system, and unless we recognize this, their unique culture will remain invisible. This book effectively enables us to achieve such an understanding, and as such is an invaluable sourcebook for all those concerned with indigeus rights.
- Author BiographyAndrew Gray was, until his untimely death in 1999, Tutor in Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford. He was also a leading activist in indigenous rights, advising the Forest Peoples Programme and the International Working Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA) among other organizations.
