Louder than Words looks at the experience of indigenous people around the world from the reclaiming of cultural identities, activism and the struggle for rights to the challenges indigenous communities still face.
Professor Jules Pretty speaks to Professor Colin Samson and Dr Carlos Gigoux Gramegna from the Department of Sociology plus Dr Julian Burger, Visiting Professor at the Human Rights Centre. He will also be joined by explorer and President of Survival International Robin Hanbury-Tenison.
Professor Samson and Dr Gigoux Gramegna said: "Understanding the relationships between indigenous peoples and their lands has been at the heart of our research. Having worked, visited and lived with indigenous groups in subarctic North America, the Southern Cone of South America, the Asia-Pacific region, and southern Africa the common factor linking the peoples we know, whether they be farmers, hunters or pastoralists is a resilient attachment to the natural environments which they call home."
