Dana Gluckstein has photographed indigenous peoples from America to Bhutan for over 30 years. See striking images, and commentary, from her new book Dignity.
In the words of Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, “Indigenous peoples throughout the world have something profound and important to teach those of us who live in the so-called modern world…They teach us that the first law of our being is that we are set in a delicate network of interdependence with our fellow human beings.” visit the photo galleries HERE

¨Amidst such degradation and dispossession, there are stories of hope. This image depicts the cultural renaissance of Native Hawaiians who seek to heal the centuries of cultural erosion and loss of identity that followed the theft of their kingdom. Now their children attend Hawaiian cultural immersion programs where they learn to speak their once forbidden Hawaiian language, to dance their traditional hula, and to feel proud of their heritage¨.” visit the photo galleries HERE
