A world of words
Seriously at risk of extinction.
” In the city, we feel the same insecurity that outsiders do in the forest, says an Awá man named Blade. But the dense Amazon forests that used to clothe vast areas of northeast Brazil have all but disappeared. Not to be replaced by cities, but by a wasteland of seemingly endless cattle ranches. The last stand of these once great forests, some of the most ancient in all the world, are where tribal peoples have resisted the ranchers’ and loggers’ advances.
This is the story of one tribe, the Awá hunter-gatherers, and their extraordinary love affair with the forest. A story of resistance, destruction, of hope, and, perhaps, survival”.(Earth’s most threatened tribe)
