In 1992 Marcos Terena, Articulator For Indigenous People's at The United Nations, organized a gathering that was to be the first time Indigenous Peoples from every continent would be in the same place. In the jungles of Brazil, just outside of Rio, a week before the First Earth Summit, The First World Conference of Indigenous People's took place.
Echoes of that seminal and ground breaking event continue to ring out. The event was closed to the public and non-indegenous peoples -- BetterListen! was called in to document on audio, the lectures and cultural music presentations.
The result is this award winning program produced by David Ison, endorsed by The United Nations, Starred Review in Publisher's Weekly, is now available for the first time in digital format.
This project belongs in libraries, world music collections and is for anyone interested in human rights, sacred cultures and the preservation of the land and its first peoples.
