Stunning photos of how tribes around the world are approaching modernity
Over the last century, tribes are being driven from their lands and traditions, and forced to embrace a majoritarian view of life. They are now in varying stages of reconciliation with ‘us’, the outsiders, with our notions of modernity and progress. However, with climate change and global warming at our doorstep, there’s a growing awareness of learning from indigenous tribal wisdom in protecting our environment, and changing the way we think about life on this planet

Members of the Canupawakpa Dakota Nation Unity Riders, of the Sioux Native American tribe, are photographed outside the United Nations offices after arriving on horseback in commemoration of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples in Manhattan, New York. The Riders made their way on horseback from Mantioba in Canada to New York, which they say is their native homeland, to build goodwill and better friendship with those who call the New York region their home now, they said.
