A short non-academic guide to indigenous peoples of the world. Indigenous peoples have long suffered from exoticization. Outsiders find their beauty, remoteness or 'difference' fascinating, and do not see beyond this to the real problems they face. This book looks beyond the exotic images, tracing the story of different indigenous peoples from their first (and often fatal) contact with explorers and colonisers to the present day.
