This book is written in the spirit that others might join in recognizing the cause of these and other "Last people" who struggle to maintain a place in this world. To many indigenous people the threat is not so much physical destruction as cultural. As never before, distinct cultures are vanishing overnight. The word for it is "ethnocide", and whether it involves tribes living on the margin of existence, whether it is a people relegated to "restricted territories", or whether it is the increasing invisibility of indigenous people in places where the unremitting message to all is, "join the mainstream, or die" the result is the same.
