Cultural diversity and indigenous peoples: oral, written expressions and new technologies

Language: Multilingual

"Cultural Diversity and Indigenous Peoples" aims to show the ways in which indigenous cultures find expression. It conveys the power of new indigenous voices through the media of essays, literature, poetry, photography, cinema, painting and songs. It also includes feature film extracts portraying aspects of contemporary life in indigenous communities.

All original languages, some of which are spoken by as few as 30 persons, are also included in the CD-ROM

Shown here-above: L'esprit de l'Ayahuasca, de Jean-Claude Cheyssial, which tells a story taken place at the heart of the Amazonian forest
