Dreams from Endangered Cultures
An extraordinary journey of the world's rarest cultures.

National Geographic Explorer, Wade Davis, celebrates the extraordinary diversity of the world’s indigenous cultures, which are disappearing from the planet at an alarming rate.

An ethnobotanist, anthropologist and author of 15 books, Davis is a powerful advocate for indigenous cultures.  

“Indigenous cultures are not failed attempts at modernity, let alone failed attempts to be us. They are unique expressions of the human imagination and heart, unique answers to a fundamental question: What does it mean to be human and alive? When asked this question, the peoples of the world respond in 7,000 different voices, and these collectively comprise our human repertoire for dealing with all the challenges that will confront us as a species over the coming centuries.”

Enjoy this truly amazing talk, illustrated with stunning photography.
