Power of the Talking Stick : Indigenous Politics and the World Ecological Crisis Hardback
The Power of the Talking Stick makes the case that, reaching back to the beginning of the nation-state and all through the current period of corporate-led globalisation, our governments and social institutions have been engaged in activities that will ultimately extinguish the world's ecological life support systems.
This book offers an alternative, listening to indigenous leaders and others whose voices often go unheard in the din of contemporary culture.
Sharon Ridgeway and Peter Jacques offer a stark warning, but their insights are firmly grounded in traditional knowledge and provide a way to see past the politics and rescue the earth.
An important resource for climate activists, students and academics.
