Publishers Description: "We invite you to look deeply at these pictures, to witness the charisma and the humanity of a tribe under siege. Only two or three decades ago, they lived as they were intended to live. The world crashed in on them and threw them out of kilter¦We must celebrate and salute our brothers and sisters of the Huaoran­ people. Looking into the pages of Petes book is an excellent place to start."-From the Foreword by Trudie Style and StingFor at least a thousand years, the Huaoran­ have lived in harmony with the environment, deep in Ecuadors Amazon rainforest. But that peaceful existence changed the moment they first made contact with the outside world. Now, as Indians, they are automatically relegated to the lowest social strata of Ecuadorian society; and even within that strata they come last, looked down upon for their nudity and victimized by sensationalistic newspaper headlines.In this powerful volume, the award-winning photographic team of Pete Oxford and Rene Bish document their plight. It is their unashamed attempt to reveal to the entire world the warm, gentle, and humorous spirit of the Huaoran­. Led by an educated member of the tribe who had written a book on Huaoran­ mythology, Oxford and Bish enjoyed the rare opportunity to view the society through an insiders eyes. They gained privileged insight, and were able to capture candid and dignified moments with sensitivity, passion, and skill. Thanks to their work, embellished with well-chosen and illuminating quotations and history, we can finally see the faces of these fascinating people, often bright with laughter and smiles; watch them navigate the rivers and forests of their native land; and see the beauty of their way of life.
