Book Description

16 Oct 2009
Our cry should be listened to by the whole worldA" - Mathambo Sesana, (San) Bushman, Botswana From the frozen taiga of Siberia to the rainforest of the Amazon and the bushland of Botswana, We Are One celebrates the extraordinary diversity of tribal peoples - their cultures, values and beliefs - and the fragile, wild beauty of the homelands to which many are still so intimately connected. This book aims to create a sense of solidarity with tribal peoples, promoting the message that they are equal to us: just as modern, just as much part of the 21st century and with just as much right to live in peace. We Are One creates a greater sense of wonder and respect for the world's tribes and their natural environments, and will emphasise the importance of what they have to teach us in terms of the many humanitarian and environmental issues inherent in their - and our - survival. We Are One is an international collaboration between tribal people, philosophers, journalists, academics, anthropologists, environmentalists and photojournalists, all brought together in support of indigenous tribes. Contributions will cover the myriad diverse themes inherent in tribal cultures, touching upon topics such as cultural diversity, tribal languages, the eco-systems of rainforests, tribal botanical knowledge, the art and wisdom of shamans, the instinctive tribal principles of balance and sustainability, the reverence for and guardianship of Mother Earth, the traditional values of reciprocity, community spirit and collective thinking and the richly colourful festivals, ceremonies and ancestral rituals. Written contributions include Noam Chomsky, Claude Levi-Strauss, Bruce Parry, Satish Kumar, Wade Davis, Robin Hanbury-Tenison and Richard Gere, to name but a few. Likewise, a large number of award-winning photographers have agreed to allow their work to be reproduced in this book, including Sebastiao Salgado, Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Steve McCurry. We Are One is both a celebration of the fragile beauty of the world's remaining tribes, and a powerful call to arms. All royalties go to Survival International to help fund their campaigning for the rights of tribal peoples worldwide

About the Author

SURVIVAL INTERNATIONAL Survival International is the only international organization today that supports tribal peoples worldwide. It was founded in 1969 and is working towards a world in which tribal peoples' diverse ways of life are understood and accepted, oppression of them is not tolerated and they are free to live their own ways of life, on their own land, in peace, freedom and security. Survival International has offices in the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, France and the Netherlands; they plan to open a US office in 2009. JOANNA EEDE writes about the environment and wilderness and explores the interconnnections between humans and nature. Her previous books include Portrait of England (Think Publishing Ltd, 2006) and Liberty and Livelihood: A Portrait of Life in Rural Britain (Travelman, 2003). She contributes articles to national newspapers and magazines on subjects ranging from the wild Przewalski horses of the Mongolian steppe, the migrating whales of the Alboran sea, the Moorish spirit of Andalucia and the sacred sites of indigenous tribes. She has produced two short films on climate change and the renaissance of local food culture in Britain and has collaborated on creative media projects with various environmental organisations.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST READ NEWS FROM FAR-FLUNG TRIBES. 3 May 2010
This beautiful, informative and timely book 'is what it says on the tin', that is; A Celebration of Tribal Peoples.
Yet it is more than that, it is a warning, a warning that there are throughout the world small groups of indigenous peoples whose way of life, and often their actual lives, are being destroyed in the name of 'progress' which often stems from corruption and and a lust for money. Thus it is also an expose. Yet the book is not at all 'shouty' rather you are pretty much left to come to your own conclusions. (this review is probably more 'shouty' than the actual book itself!)
As best as it has been possible to research, Survival International has for some years been standing up for oppressed peoples rights, they receive support from a lot of celebrities - the usual suspects! - and of course from lots of relative nonentities such as myself.
The actual book is so beautiful that I keep on buying it and giving it away as presents, so far four or five copies.
The photography is really good but best of all are the quotes from the tribal people themselves. They talk of their environment with a love that is so touching that even thinking about their words brings tears to the eyes.
If in order to get more money you have to first eliminate the inhabitants before cutting down their trees, what are you? These people have no knowledge of Madoff, sub prime, the credit crunch and so on, they are people just wanting to survive in what for them is an increasingly hostile and oppressive world that is trying to wipe them out. Please everyone, get this truly celebratory book, then at least you will be aware of what is being done to these utterly defenceless yet wonderful fellow humans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful images, moving words 18 Nov 2009
This is a really beautiful book which absorbed me for hours. It's got loads of fantastic photos of indigenous tribes from around the world, and also has their thoughts and wisdom in some short extracts. If you are interested in other cultures, I would recomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enlightening read 23 May 2011
This is an amazing book. Just leafing through it makes you want to see more of the world and learn more about the different peoples that inhabit it. There are some amazing pictures in it and some interesting short essays. It is not without its sombre elements though and can make for depressing reading when you see how the appetite for "development" of the world's mainstream cultures all too often comes at the cost of tribal peoples land and rights.
Never more than a few days go by when I don't pick this book up to have look through and remind myself what really matters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book 18 Nov 2009
By Mrs P
Mrs P was lucky enough to be given a copy of this book. It is a beautiful book with amazing pix of tribes around the world. It reminded Mrs P of her younger days travelling around the world visiting different tribes in her year off working for charity trying to make the world a better place. The book also has gathered an impressive list of contributors from Richard Gere to Noam Chomsky putting across the more serious side of the book - highlighting some of the problems tribes face today in the name of progress. The perfect Xmas book, and all of for charidee Survival International! Pride of place on my Philippe Starck coffee table.
