Synopsis:

A portrait in photographs and text of fifteen uniquely individual tribes that have retained their identity in the face of globalization.

Synopsis:

A stunning photographic record of the world's endangered peoples and wild places.

The western world and its consumer-goods culture dominate almost all of Earth. But Living Tribes captures in images the peoples whose lives, traditions, and culture have remained unchanged for millennia. These cultures hold vital knowledge that is passed down from generation to generation through artwork, handicraft, and storytelling. Essential to tribal life are its age-old rituals and customs.

Colin Prior and his camera were allowed extraordinary access to the daily routines and special rites of 15 tribes.

The dignified and beautiful photographs capture the universal essence of humanity and the sweeping majesty of our environment. Informative introductions explain the cultural context of the images — how tribal cultures evolved and the various threats to their existence.

This book is a tribute to humanity's relentless spirit to survive and thrive even in some of the most hostile conditions on Earth.
