The No-Nonsense Guide to Indigenous Peoples is the 2012 revised and updated edition of a short introduction to and overview of the world's Indigenous peoples, commissioned by New Internationalist for its No-Nonsense Guides series. This 150-page guide introduces the general reader to issues of who are Indigenous Peoples, colonialism, conquest, land, the environment, and fighting back.  It updates the reader on issues such as the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples; the election of Bolivia’s President Evo Morales, and Latin America. The volume allows the Indigenous peoples to speak for themselves and includes the Sami; Endorois of Kenya; Barabaig of Tanzania; the Yanomami of Brazil; the Ogiek of Kenya; the Kurds of Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria; the Karamojong of Uganda; Cree peoples in Canada, Brazil, Chile, Southeast Asia, and many others. Current statistics, maps, charts, graphs, an index, and Indigenous Peoples organizations and websites are included. This is an engaging and accessible read about how Indigenous Peoples have moved to centre stage with issues such as the environment and natural resources. Highly Recommended.
