Nature v Progress
Friends of Peoples close to Nature chronicles the ongoing invasions of Fourth World nations by modern states and transnational corporations. The forum for 'friends of Peoples close to Nature' is a movement of groups and individuals, concerned with the survival of tribal peoples and their culture, in particular hunter-gatherers. As the first and last societies on earth to have a non-exploitive relationship with the natural world, their task is to help them preserve their unique cultures from enforced assimilation, alien religions, the ideologies of 'progress' and 'growth' and absorption into the global economy.
